Improving the habitat of the Glossy Black Cockatoo (Maryke Booth / Royalla Landcare)

The Capital Region Landkeepers Trust supported Royalla Landcare with funding to undertake a Glossy Black Cockatoo habitat restoration project. The project has and will continue to make a difference to the survival of Glossy Black Cockatoo; a vulnerable species in the Capital Region due to its highly specific feeding habits (feeding exclusively on She-oak), historical land clearing, on-going loss of hollow-bearing trees, urbanisation and over grazing.
