Carnaby's cockatoo

Stop WA Gov growth plans to devour remaining rare cockatoo habitat

The globally unique and lovable Carnaby's Cockatoo may live up to 70 years and exists only in the South West of West Australia, a state which is experiencing exponential human population expansion, due to big business backing a program of mass economic migration.
