We are looking for people who want to find out more about Gang-gangs on the south coast, particularly what they are eating, where they are nesting, the rate of nesting success and how that success is influenced by factors thought to be impacting negatively on the Gang-gang such as brush-tail possum predation, hollow competition from Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and other species, overheating in hollows and flooding of hollows. This information will help inform the conservation of this bird and lead to the implementation of action as to how its dramatic decline (around 70% in less than 30 years) may be turned around.

We will be finding out information about Gang-gangs that is currently unknown and coordinating our research with work undertaken elsewhere across the Cockatoos' range, so that results in our area can be compared with that of other places and habitat such as burnt/unburnt urban/remote, using data from several different locations. There are different levels of involvement you can choose Your personal details will not be shared by us outside this project without your permission.

Please share this information with other persons who may be interested.
