All over Australia, the environment is changing faster than animals and plants have ever dealt with before.

But some species are able to innovate to access new resources and also to learn from others' innovations and these abilities could have a real impact on their long term survival.

In this case, the animal is the sulphur-crested cockatoo and the innovation is learning how to open a wheelie bin. Sounds silly, but this is serious science.

Fascinating - David
