Glossy Black Cockatoo

Scientific Name: 
Calyptorhynchus lathami

The Glossy Black Cockatoo is a rare cockatoo species that is found in Logan. They feed exclusively on the seeds of she-oaks. At Griffith University, 300 black she-oaks (Allocasuarina littoralis) have been planted to provide a food source for these birds.

The Glossy Black Conservancy is working to preserve this species. For more information on the Glossy Black Cockatoo, and information of how you can help, see their website at
