Great Cocky Count 2014 – Training Session – Volunteers Needed!

Date: 24th March 2014
Time: 17:30 PM - 19:00 PM

Location: South Street Campus, Law Building, room 1.102

A free training session will be held on Monday 24 March for volunteers wanting to help with the 2014 Great Cocky Count at Murdoch University’s South Street campus. The Murdoch campus is an important roost site for the endangered Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo. Come along to the evening training session to find out all about the Great Cocky Count and ensure you’ll get the most from your survey.


Great Cocky Count (GCC) training will be provided by Dr Hugh Finn, a Murdoch researcher and GCC Coordinator from Birdlife Australia.  The training will include cockatoo identification and a practice roost count.  Come to the Law Building, room 1.102, Monday 24 March from 5.30pm.  Although not mandatory, the training will help you get the best results from your participation and ensure Birdlife Australia
gets good quality data from its ‘citizen scientists’.
