FREE GLOSSY BLACK COCKATOO WORKSHOP

 

The Glossy Black Cockatoo is gaining recognition and support in the Scenic Rim as an iconic native species. As part of the Mt Barney Lodge Birdweek program, a free workshop on this magnificent bird will take place.

This workshop is sponsored through a Scenic Rim Council environment grant to LACA (Logan and Albert Conservation Association), and hosted free-of-charge by Mt Barney Lodge. There are a number of man-made threats to the Glossy’s habitat, and these are causing it to continue to slide towards a "threatened" existence. There are also a number of positive actions we can take as a community to ensure its’ continued survival.

Come and find out an overview of all of the facts, and learn more about the Glossy Black Cockatoo from the experts. Dr Guy Castelles from Griffith University and lead research member will be the guest speaker, and well known SEQ bird person Rod Bloss from BrisBOCA will also present on the day. The workshop will be followed with a walking tour of the onsite Glossy conservation project at Mt Barney Lodge. See firsthand the plants they eat, the evidence of them having visited recently, and with any luck the birds themselves!!!!

Mt Barney Lodge, LACA, Scenic Rim Council, Dr Guy Castelles and BrisBOCA are all connected with the GLOSSY BLACK CONSERVANCY – an organisation who is actively trying to keep this bird around for longer!!

 

 

Also, mark the Sunday 31 October in your diary now, as the first Scenic Rim Glossy Black Cockatoo Survey will take place in The Scenic Rim, and volunteers for the day are being sought now!!

 

 

The free workshops, on Saturday 11 September from 9.30-11.30 at Mt Barney Lodge is the place to start.
