Ibis and Cockatoo sightings - You can help

Shoalhaven City Council’s environmental team are assisting the Botanic Gardens and Birdlife Australia in spreading the word for the Ibis and Cockatoo Community Survey Aussie Bird Count.

As part of National Bird Week, 17-23 October, Birdlife Australia is coordinating the Aussie Backyard Bird Count. Wildlife Ecologists want to find out where all the Australian White Ibis and Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are across Australia.

This survey aims to gain a better understanding of the distribution and abundance of the two birds in NSW.
