We’re fast losing white-tailed black cockatoos from the skies of southwest Australia, the only place in the world they’re found.
They’re under serious threat from habitat loss – and now illegal shooting. A handful of landholders are gunning down as many as 200 birds like Lucky every year. That’s devastating for our black cockatoos, who are very slow to breed. Losing even just one bird of breeding age can have a huge impact on the next generation.
With your support, WWF can rally government to do more and spend more to halt illegal shooting.
Longer term, one of the biggest problems with protecting black cockatoos is how little is known about them. That’s why, with the support of people like you, WWF has been sponsoring the rehabilitation of injured black cockatoos who will return to the wild with tracking technology attached. They’ll be giving researchers crucial new information about how they’re using the landscape, so we can learn which areas need protection. That’s vital if we’re to safeguard their habitat – and the future of their species.
Please help WWF tackle illegal shooting and the other serious threats facing black cockatoos. Use your Qantas Points today to stop these beautiful birds from dying out.
