Get planting for the Glossy Black-Cockatoos

Glossy Black-Cockatoos are one of the more threatened species of cockatoo in Australia, and listed as vulnerable in Queensland.

You can help improve their habitat – and prospects – by lending a hand at the 12th Annual Glossy Black-Cockatoo Community Planting to plant 700 native seedlings. This year’s event will be held on Saturday 26 September at Pioneer Park, Lamb Island.

The Redlands Bushcare team will provide the plants and equipment required, so all you need to bring is your own sun protection, enclosed shoes and drinking water.

Once the planting work is done, there’ll be a free sausage sizzle for all volunteers and an informative talk about these magnificent birds.

Mainland and inter-island residents can pre-register with IndigiScapes to arrange transfers to the planting site on Lamb Island, catching the 9am ferry departing from Weinam Creek Marina, Banana Street, Redland Bay (Translink fares apply).
