Save the Black Cockatoos Habitat in Pinjar

This petition had 641 supporters


The State Government of Western Australia plans to clear 23,000 ha of pine plantations located in Pinjar. Within these pine plantations lives over 5000 Carnabys black cockatoos and by clearing this land creates a huge loss of their roosting habitat. Black cockatoos numbers are already on a significant decline due to reducing bushland causing these cockatoos to run out of places to breed and feed. Therefore clearing this land would only cause Carnabys cockatoo numbers to decrease more. Although the state government are planning to create new conservation reserves these will take time to establish and will affect the birds roost patterns and cause a further decline. 

Theses areas have been their feeding, nesting and breeding sites as well as perches and sustaining large flocks in their territories. However, the vast clearing and urban building within these areas have often come into conflict with the black cockatoos. Roads, vehicles, buildings, power lines, vast areas of concrete and clearance of all vegetation have brought about collision and loss in the flocks. 

Please sign the petition to keep the roosting ground of the Carnaby Cockatoos in Pinjar. To also help preserve these beautiful birds for many future generations to see.
