Carnaby Cockatoos

Bringing birds into your garden is one of life's pleasures... and by planting certain varieties, you not only attract birds - you can help save the most endangered

Our black cockatoos are very iconic. They're only found here in the south west - nowhere else in Australia, and nowhere else in the world. But If we continue the current decline, they will be extinct in the wild within the next 20 years.

But there's hope. Birdlife Australia's Jessica Lee says everyone in Perth can definitely help save Carnaby's cockatoos.

The best way: your garden.
