Hi David


Please see the advice below about the upcoming 2023 Great Inland Glossy Count. I would appreciate it if you could send provide this information to interested club members.


The Great Inland Glossy Count is back again in 2023. This is part of a project aiming to secure the inland population of the Glossy Black Cockatoo in NSW, coordinated by the Central West Local Land Services in partnership with NSW NPWS, Forest Corp NSW and the Dubbo Field Naturalists.

Similar to last year, the count will be run on two weekends in February 2023. Dates for the surveys this year are as follows:

  • 18 February - Pilliga Forests and surrounds (registrations close on 15 February)
  • 25 February - Goonoo National Park and surrounds (registrations close on 22 February)

Surveys in Goobang NP are already full this year given the small number of monitoring sites within the reserve. But please feel free to contact the project team to discuss in more detail.

As with last year, all participants are required to register via the NPWS Volunteer portal. Details about the count and links to the registration portal can be found at  

If you have previously registered and/or participated in the Count, you can log into your VIP account via and select your preferred weekend.

Registered participants will be emailed further information about how the surveys will be run during the week prior to each count.

The project team is looking for volunteers to assist with the counts on one or more of those weekends. As per last year, you can choose to be involved in one or more of the count weekends as suits you best. This is a great opportunity to visit some of our inland National Parks and state forests as part of a large scale citizen science project. The only equipment required are a pair of binoculars, a notepad and the ability to travel to the site.

If you have any questions please email either Libby McIntyre or myself (m("","Adam.Fawcett");">).

Cheers and thanks
