Gang-gang Cockatoo Recovery

The 2019-20 Black Summer bushfires devastated Gang-gang Cockatoo habitat. Subsequently, because of their diminished numbers, the Gang-gang Cockatoo was listed as an endangered species. This BirdLife Australia project is equipping Australians with the skills they need to help save these birds.

Gang-gang numbers have been declining for decades, but their prospects deteriorated drastically during the 2019-20 Black Summer bushfires, which destroyed large areas of their habitat. As a result, they have now been listed as an endangered species.
