At least 8 pairs of Glossy Black-Cockatoos were seen in Rob Roy Nature Reserve by one of the rangers last Friday 13th.
To help create habitat for this species, a couple of thousand Allocasuarina verticillata were planted today on Isaacs Ridge. Another casuarina planting will be held for World Environment Day, Sunday 5 June, on Tuggeranong Hill - not far as the cocky flies from Rob Roy. If you are interested in doing something constructive for the GBC, read on....

Planting on Tuggeranong Hill

What and Why? Help ACT Parks and Conservation Service and Greening Australia plant 2,500 Allocasuarina verticillata in the eastern section of Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve to provide food for Glossy Black-Cockatoos. The Glossy Black-Cockatoo is declared as vulnerable to the threat of extinction in the ACT and depends on the availability of seed from these trees to survive.

When? Sunday 5 June (World Environment Day), 9:30am to 12:30pm followed by lunch

Where? Eastern section of Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve. Parking will be off Callister Crescent Theodore. Look for Greening Australia signs

What to bring? Please bring hat, sunscreen, long sleeves, gardening gloves, long pants, sturdy boots, and water bottle. Holes will be pre-dug but there will be some digging still required (mattocks provided)

RSVP essential: Contact Greening Australia, or 6253 3035
