Great Cocky Count Workshop

  • Citiplace Community Centre, Upper Level Walkway 8/378 Wellington Street Perth, WA, 6000 Australia

City of Perth and BirdLife WA are hosting Great Cocky Count workshop during Parks Week 2016.

This free community workshop will be held at the Citiplace Community Centre on Tuesday 8 March from 6pm-8pm, and is for people interested in registering for the BirdLife WA Great Cocky Count for 2016, which is held 3 April this year. 

The Great Cocky Count is a long-term citizen science survey and the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. Volunteers monitor known roost sites and count black-cockatoos as they come in to their evening roosts. Records submitted from across the southwest provide a snapshot of black-cockatoo populations, and over time this has helped us quantify the changes in black-cockatoo numbers. The workshop explains how to register and what is involved.

People can register for the workshop by emailing shelley.smith@cityofperth.wa.gov.au by 5pm Friday 4th March 2016 (places are limited).
