The Keep Carnaby’s Flying – Ngoolarks Forever project is science-informed and community-powered.
We are working with local governments, environmental and wildlife NGOs and Aboriginal organisations to undertake community outreach and engagement for black cockatoo conservation. We are developing black cockatoo Conservation Action Plans for four local government authorities across Perth each year. We are guiding revegetation activities; protecting foraging habitat, roost trees and vegetation corridors; and installing bird water drinking stations to help iconic, endangered, much-loved Ngoolarks (Carnaby’s cockatoos) to survive in our city.
Our project aims to engage the community to keep Carnaby’s flying (safeguard their future) by addressing threats and providing food, water and habitat across the Perth-Peel region.
We hope that this project’s collaborations among local governments,
NGOs and Friends of Bushland groups will continue beyond the project’s
lifetime, with ongoing revegetation and rewilding activities to provide
new Carnaby’s cockatoo food and habitat every year.
Showcasing important priorities
Our project aligns with our partner Lotterywest’s priority Protected Sustainable Ecosystems, helping Perth become a viable ecosystem to protect and sustain Ngoolarks. Our community revegetation actions highlight Lotterywest’s priorities Inclusive Thriving Community and Active Healthy People.
