The Great Glossy Count is a citizen science event led by BirdLife Australia, which collects data across the entire distribution of the South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoo (south-eastern Qld, eastern NSW, the ACT & eastern Vic).
The South-eastern subspecies of Glossy Black-Cockatoo (‘Glossies’) was recently listed as Vulnerable under Australian legislation.
Participant citizen scientists spend one hour (ideally a few) at any time during the Count weekend exploring their selected survey site to collect data on Glossies and their feeding habitat.
Citizen scientists can join the Count as a group or bring a friend along for a great opportunity to enjoy time in nature while supporting the recovery of threatened birds.
