Cockatoos in crisis
Video | Updated 3 years ago
Curator of Ornithology, Terrestrial Zoology
Baudin's and Carnaby's Cockatoos are listed as endangered, and the Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoo as threatened. All have suffered a substantial loss of habitat and a decline in numbers. Baudin's Cockatoo faces the paradox of being listed as endangered and declared as an agricultural pest to commercial orchards which is a challenging plight indeed.
Join Ron Johnstone as he examines the causes of this decline and how the conservation of Baudin's Cockatoo in particular provides us with a great challenge for the future.
