Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and Australian White Ibis

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and Australian White Ibis

 

You’re invited to participate in the annual Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and Australian White Ibis surveys – coordinated by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.

 

Why is this important?

The census aims to better understand how many of these birds there are, where they are breeding and what habitat they are using across Australia. This will help to assess the habitats the bird species prefer and to develop appropriate conservation practices.

 

More information and register your sightings

 

If you can take the time to assist, it would be greatly appreciated and will help understanding and research of some of our most important native birds.
