My Story

The target for the BirdLife Twitchathon for South Australia in 2019 is to raise $5000 to fund recovery efforts for the South-eastern Red-tailed Black Cockatoo (SERTBC) Recovery Project.

The South-eastern Red-tailed Black Cockatoo only occurs in the south-east of SA and the south-west of VIC, and long-term monitoring of the population suggests numbers are in decline.

Recent studies have shown that nest availability may be a limiting factor in the recovery of these beautiful cockatoos in South Australia. The Recovery Team will be installing 50 nest boxes over the next two years in priority areas across the Red-tail’s range in SA.

While we have installed nest boxes for the Red-tails in the past, monitoring of the boxes has always been limited due to funding. Over the past few years a PhD student has been developing bioacoustic monitoring technology as a cost-effective way to monitor Red-tail nests.

The Recovery Project is hoping to raise funds to be able to effectively monitor our new nest boxes and other Red-tail nests using bioacoustic equipment for next year’s breeding season. Monitoring nests and nest boxes would allow us to gain more information about breeding success and fledgling survival of the population, which would help direct our recovery efforts into the future

Thank You
