|2013 Great Cocky Count at sunset|
Join up for WA's biggest survey for Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo! The fifth Great Cocky Count (GCC) will take place for one hour at sunset on Sunday 7 April. This community-driven annual survey aims to count as many Carnaby's as possible at their night-time roost sites on a single night each April.
Roosts are places where black-cockatoos rest at night. Important information on the location of critical roosting habitat for cockatoos is collected through the GCC, and is increasing with every survey completed. The 2012 GCC found there has been a 40% decline since 2010 in the number of Carnaby's in the Perth region, where we have three continuous years of robust survey data.
