Meetings for 2017

6 July 2017

Short talk - Peter Crow: Monitoring cats at Bowra. Earlier this year, South West Natural Resource Management (NRM) Ltd funded a project to monitor the cat population at Bowra. Peter will share the interesting results of the project.

Long talk - Daniella Teixeira: Monitoring glossy & red-tailed black-cockatoo populations. Monitoring the populations of threatened species such as the glossy and red-tailed black-cockatoos is important for making conservation decisions. However, these birds can be challenging to monitor using visual surveys. Daniella will discuss her research into the use of black- cockatoo vocalisations to improve monitoring, particularly in devising methods to monitor breeding. Daniella will highlight the current monitoring that is done for glossy and red-tailed black- cockatoos, such as that of the Glossy Black Conservancy, the benefits of these programs and also their limitations. She will share some of her sound clips and video footage that she has collected as part of her research.
