Black cockatoo project

Postby Pajarita » Sun Mar 11, 2018 11:47 am

Two articles, the first one an old one that says that they had seen black cockatoos feeding in the sites where they had been mines and were now being 'rehabilitated' and a newer one that states that the rehabilitation is not working out because the old forest trees they need to nest take years and years and years and years to grow. This is something that worries me terribly because destruction of habitats cannot be reversed fast enough to save a species after we have messed them up...

Reducing the area where they clear pine forests so as to help with the effort to save the species.
