Participate in Monitoring Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos

Take part in the Alcoa Foundation Spring Cocky Count, monitoring Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos at their evening roost sites. This information helps us understand their seasonal movements and informs conservation efforts.

Contribute to Cockatoo Conservation

Join the Alcoa Foundation Spring Cocky Count, an annual event since 2018, dedicated to monitoring Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo roost sites in the Greater Perth–Peel Region.

By participating, you’ll be contributing to our understanding of their movements and conservation to ensure their survival.

The next Alcoa Foundation Spring Cocky Count is scheduled for Sunday 8 October. Registrations for the Spring Cocky Count have closed for 2023. Registration dates for 2024 will be announced in the new year. 

If you know of any Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo roosting sites in this area that are occupied in spring, please let us know by emailing us via the contact form on this page, or on the registration form.

The Great Cocky Count and Alcoa Foundation Spring Cocky Count is supported by the Alcoa Foundation, and forms part of the Alcoa Community Black-cockatoo Recovery Project.
