Glossy Black Cockatoo Project

Mid Lachlan Landcare have recieved funding to run a project to propagate and plant out feed trees on private properties in the area through Conimbla National Park for the Glossy Black Cockatoo.

The Glossy Black Cockatoo is a threatened species in NSW and a regular visitor to Conimbla National Park as documented by local wildlife photographer Jayden Gunn. His work to raise awareness of this special birds presence has inspired this project.

We are in the process of collecting the seeds from it’s main food source Allocasuarina diminuta. These will be propagated at the Weddin Community Native Nursery and once big enough will be planted out in groves on 6 local properties in 2021. The aim is to provide further food resources for the species in the future.
