I noticed in my local newspaper, a Notice of Preliminary Determination to support a proposal to list the Gang-gang Cockatoo as a Vulnerable Species in NSW.

The Determination can be accessed at

It makes interesting reading. Apparently the Gang-gang has declined dramatically within NSW and this is shown in the reporting rates in the two Birds Australia Atlases (a decline by 44% across its NSW range). The causes for this are unknown.

If anyone wishes to make a submission these can be forwarded to:
Scientific Committee, PO Box 1967, Hurstville NSW 2220, and must be received by 28th January 2005.
