Calyptorhynchus latirostris is a cockatoo endemic to the south of Western Australia. Also more commonly known as the Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, it is unfortunately on the threatened species list. The population size of Carnaby’s Cockatoos has fallen by more than 50% over the last 45 years due to loss of habitat. Does this sound like a familiar story facing other species you know?
