The Great Cocky Count is a citizen science survey, the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. Held on a single evening in autumn.

Volunteers monitor known roost sites and count black-cockatoos as they come in to roost for the evening.


Great Cocky Count workshops are held at a number of locations around Perth and the South West prior to the count itself to share information on black-cockatoo biology, ecology, behaviour, threats and how YOU can become involved in the Great Cocky Count.


Landcare SJ will be hosting two free Great Cocky Count workshops in 2023, the first will be held at the North Dandalup Memorial Hall on February 22nd  and the second at the Oakford Community Hall on March 1st, (guest speakers to be announced, check Facebook posts for details or provide an expression of interest to the email below).
