The Glossy Project – Coffs Coast is a citizen science initiative which supports the bushfire recovery of South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoos and their habitats on the Coffs Coast in NSW.

The South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoo population is declining, and continues to be threatened by bushfires, droughts, land clearing, urban development and inappropriate planned fires.
