BirdLife and the Glossy Black Conservancy are holding a citizen science event surveying Glossies across the Eastern coast of Aus. The Glossy Black Cockatoo is absolutely beautiful but are at risk, and this event will provide useful data for conservation efforts.

The event will include a full day of counting and observation, likely in northern Victoria. We'll also get access to a bunch of learning materials and workshops to help with our efforts on the day! This will include learning...

- how to identify Glossy Black-Cockatoos

- what they eat, and how to recognise feed trees

- Glossy Black-Cockatoo ecology and behaviour; and

- How to record data so it can be used to protect the birds.

Trip meeting:

We'll receive information about where we're needed a few weeks prior to the trip. Depending on where we're heading, we might decide to camp the night before and after. Make sure you come to the meeting so we can figure this out!


Everyone needs to sign up individually at this link!

Put the club address in the form (171 Berkeley St, Melbourne VIC 3000) and make sure to write 'MUMC' for q10 about team members!

Make sure to specify Victoria-based sites.

I'm super pumped about participating in some science for one of my favourite Aussie birds & keen to spot em with you!
