13037: Revegetating unused land at Como Secondary College
Como Secondary College is situated beside the Collier Golf Course, one of the most significant Black Cockatoo roosting sites on the Swan Coastal Plain.
The site is also a significant corridor for other birds such as the endangered New Holland honeyeater and the migratory Rainbow bee-eater.
The 2012 Great Cocky Count revealed a 40% decrease in the number of active roosts south of the Swan River since 2010. It is therefore very important to protect this site.
This project will revegetate degraded areas of the site with 10 000 native seedlings that support the food and habitat needs of black cockatoos.
