Black-Cockatoo Conservation involves a number of different aspects, such as: Rehabilitating injured wild Black-Cockatoos (to eventually release back into the wild); Strategically installing feeding stations and long-life artificial nesting hollows in Black-Cockatoo habitat that's affected from natural and human caused disasters, such as bushfires. This promotes breeding in the wild, which is the key for an endangered species to increase its numbers naturally and avoid extinction.
All Black-Cockatoos are rare and protected but some Black-Cockatoo species need the most help, due to their rapidly declining wild populations. Important Black-Cockatoo conservation programs are currently underway and the public can also get involved.
