The breeding season has started for threatened Carnaby’s black cockatoos, and Borden Primary School students were given a treat to see these delightful birds nesting in a stunning piece of Wandoo Woodland bush near Borden.

Around 60 cockatoo artificial nesting hollows (Cockatubes) have been installed in this special bush, which have helped the birds enormously in their breeding endeavours.

On their visit the students were treated to viewing a 24 hour old chick in one of the Cockatubes, and learnt all about the recovery efforts carried out in South Coast region.
