ABOUT THE

CAMPAIGN

We are a coalition of Traditional Owners, peak conservation groups, and leading WA scientists.
We are calling on the WA State Government to initiate a Eleven-Point Plan to save WA ’s Southwest black cockatoos that are threatened and endangered.
Western Australia’s Southwest is home to three iconic species of black cockatoo, the Ngolark (Baudin’s Black Cockatoo), the Ngolyenok (Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo), and the Karak (Forest
Red-tailed Black Cockatoo).
All have fallen drastically in number and could be extinct within 20 years without strong action to protect their habitat. Most of their woodlands and forests have been cleared and what remains is fragmented and much altered by logging, mining, clearing, drying from climate change and fire management practices. This has resulted in the depletion of both their food supply and the old trees with large hollows that they need for breeding.
The lack of food has forced many to rely on gardens and plantations. The Ngolyenoks are reliant on a single pine plantation for half their food in the Perth-Peel area. This plantation is currently being chopped down and has already been reduced from 23,000 hectares to just 6,000 hectares.
The population in Perth has already declined by 35% in the Perth area over the last 10 years and scientists say that removing this food will reduce their population by 56% by 2050.
