Not sure how many GBC's there are across Australia but that blurb obviously refers to the Kangaroo Island subspecies, which I believe is critically endangered.

I just received an email stating that there was only 280 GBC left in Australia and to click onto the AMP website to register $1 for Greening Australia to revegetate Kangaroo Island ( in short).
I have a number of problems with the blurb provided ( see below)
AMP Foundation will donate up to $10,000 to this project, so tell your friends and encourage them to visit this site.
Greening Australia's Glossy Black-Cockatoo project is a habitat restoration project. The Glossy Black-Cockatoo is only found on Kangaroo Island in South Australia and there are only approximately 280 of these critically endangered birds left.
It's a pity that they don't get their facts straight first. To that extent, is there a reasonable estimate of how many there are across Australia?????
