Join BirdLife's Gang-gang Recovery Project

Join BirdLife for the Gang-gang Cockatoo Recovery Project and gain the skills and knowledge to take action to make a real impact on the conservation of this iconic species! Participants will also help us uncover the secrets of this charismatic but mysterious bird and contribute to research that will inform further Gang-gang Cockatoo recovery actions! This is a crucial time to be involved in this project, with the species listed as Endangered in March this year following dramatic declines in recent decades, compounded by a devastating loss of their habitat in the 2019-2020 wildfires.

Join BirdLife for our Gang-gang Cockatoo Recovery Project and make a real impact on the conservation of this iconic species!

Participants will have access to BirdLife’s free, online self-guided Gang-gang Cockatoo Project course, to learn about Gang-gang Cockatoos and develop their own action plan to help the species. Participants also learn how to undertake bird surveys and submit these to Birdata to contribute to BirdLife's understanding of Gang-gangs, have the opportunity to share and connect with other participants, and contribute to research that will inform recovery actions. In June 2022 this course will open to participants across the Gang-gang Cockatoo's range.

BirdLife is currently taking expressions of interest from participants for the second round of this exciting project! Please fill in the form below to express your interest. This project will begin at the enf of June 2022. We will be in touch with further details closer to the date.

  • Located within the range of the Gang-gang Cockatoo
