Stacey Taylor from the ANU and ACT Government is seeking support to undertake surveys on Gang-gang Cockatoos in the ACT. Gang-gangs have been nominated for listing as Endangered with the Australian Government and it is possible that the forested areas in our region are critical to the long-term survival of this species.
ACT community members have been collecting valuable information about Gang-gangs breeding in the ACT’s urban areas for several years but there is otherwise very little known about this iconic bird. Stacey is hoping that with community support, we can better understand the occupancy and habitat requirements of Gang-gangs across the ACT.
Dates: 18th September, 25 September and the 2nd October
Location: urban/peri urban and Namadgi NP (100 site locations yet to be determined)
