Abstract:  40 Years of Carnaby's Black Cockatoo 
In the 1960s in south-western Australia, because of damage to orchards and pine plantations, the white-tailed black cockatoo had a bounty on its beak. Research then revealed two species of black cockatoo with white-tail bands; Carnaby's Black Cockatoo was responsible for the damage to pine plantations and Baudin's Black Cockatoo for orchard damage.
By the late 1980s, following extensive decline, Carnaby's Black Cockatoo had been classified as endangered. Carnaby's Black Cockatoo has been studied in detail since 1968, with one population being monitored for 23 of the years from 1969 to 2009. This seminar presents data on the 40 year study of this species and the impact of habitat loss on its breeding range and breeding success.
