In partnership with the District Council of Yankalilla we will be creating habitat to provide a critical food and nesting stepping stone at Wirrina Cove on the Fleurieu Peninsula for the endangered Black Glossy Cockatoo. Much of this habitat was lost due to clearing of Woodland on the Fleurieu Peninsula in the 1900's, which has restricted the Black Glossy Cockatoo to Kangaroo Island.

This community focused project will enhance fragmented habitat by planting 25,000 trees such as Drooping Sheoak Low Woodland and associated canopy and understorey species such as SA Blue Gum and Pink Gum. This project will expand viable foraging and nesting sites 17kms north from the small pockets of vegetation that currently exist; which will allow the Black Glossy Cockatoo to cross back to the mainland and establish populations on the Fleuriu Peninsula.

FEBRUARY: The first step of this project will be to remove and collect tree guards and stakes from Fishery Beach, Cape Jervis that will then be used later in the year to protect the newly planted trees.

MARCH: These project days will focus on site prepartion at Wirrina Cove, including marking the planting locations, weed control and preparing the plants at our nursery.

APRIL & MAY: Most of the project days will involve tree planting at the site.
