Glossy Black-Cockatoo

THREATENED SPECIES
 

These Glossy Black-Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus lathami halmaturinus) are found only in small pockets of Kangaroo Island. It was a special experience to enjoy an hour with these wonderful birds. Thankfully the dedicated conservation efforts of many people, including Kangaroo Island locals, has made their future a little more secure.
