November Meeting (AGM)

Chris Davey and Kathy Eyles - The Gang-gang Cockatoo survey - Citizen science in action.

The Gang-gang cockatoo survey is a citizen science project initiated by the Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG) in 2014 to celebrate 50 years of birding in the ACT.  The Gang-gang is the ACT’s bird and faunal emblem and the emblem of COG and the ACT Parks Service.  Surprisingly, little is known about this popular bird and due to habitat loss across its range, the Gang-gang is listed as vulnerable in NSW. This ambitious project sought to shed light on the population and distribution of the Gang-gang in the COG region, covering the ACT and immediate surrounds in NSW.

Chris Davey will present results from the survey whilst Kathy Eyles will discuss community involvement.
