Survey/Project Number: 444          Total No. of Sites: 661
Survey/Project Name: Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo Habitat Recovery Project
Abstract: Research has been conducted since 1998 to identify current threats to this unique population (Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoos on the Eyre Peninsula). This information is then used to guide "on ground" activities to maximise their benefit to the cockatoo population. Data has been collected on Diet, Breeding, Habitat Use and Movements, Release Trials. Future Work includes -Monitor the utilisation of revegetated food resources. -Continue with genetic research to ascertain sub-species status of the Eyre Peninsula population. -Produce strategic guidelines for Aleppo Pine control and Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo conservation on Eyre Peninsula. -Investigate habitat use by non-breeding Eyre Peninsula Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos -Investigate nutritional profiles of Aleppo Pine seeds and native seeds. and Continuation of: -Protect critical breeding and foraging habitat. -Erect tree guards to protect nesting sites. -Monitor breeding success and nestling growth. -Protect and increase native food resources through revegetation. -Identify and protect important Aleppo Pine feeding sites.
