The Great Cocky Count is a long-term citizen science survey and the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. On one night in autumn, volunteers monitor known roost sites and count black-cockatoos as they come in to their evening roosts. Records submitted from across the southwest provide a snapshot of black-cockatoo populations, and over time this has helped us quantify the changes in black-cockatoo numbers.

The Great Cocky Count originally started as a survey method for Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoos, and focussed just on the roost sites around the Perth Metropolitan area, but over recent years has expanded to include Forest Red-tailed Cockatoos as well as sites across the southwest. 2019 will be the tenth consecutive Great Cocky Count.
