Birdlife Australia will be holding free workshops around Perth and in regional centres across southwest WA in the lead up to the Great Cocky Count. The workshops will bring the world of black-cockatoos to life, identify the threats they face, and show how people can get involved in the GCC and take other actions to support black-cockatoos.

Please see the list of workshops below and follow the links for more details and for registration. More workshops and links will be added as further details become available. The workshops will be hosted by local councils and conservation/Landcare groups, and presented by BirdLife Australia staff.
