Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation

South-west Western Australia boasts three extraordinary black cockatoo taxa found nowhere else in the world. These are the distinctive short-billed Carnaby’s (Zanda latirostris) and the long-billed Baudin’s (Zanda baudinii) white-tailed cockatoos, and a subspecies of the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo known as the Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii naso). These three species were once common in the south-west forests, however are now all threatened due to habitat loss, competition, and conflict with urban activities (i.e. vehicle strikes, poisoning) as the human population of Perth continues to expand.
