Shoalhaven's Aboriginal community and Local Aboriginal Land Council rangers will be sharing cultural knowledge of glossy black cockatoos at a series of community workshops this week. Community Engagement Officer with the Department of Planning and Environment, Rod Broad, said the last few months have been busy for those involved in the conservation project as they reconnect with the fire impacted landscapes the cockatoos call home. "This unique, Aboriginal community project has now reached the point where we have a draft Healthy Country Plan outlining how we will secure and enhance custodianship of glossy black cockatoos into the future," Mr Broad said. "It's come about by sharing cultural knowledge of the species, and in that same spirit we want to share our plan and vision with the wider Shoalhaven and South Coast community," Mr Broad said. Information sessions on the draft Healthy Country Plan will be presented by project staff and community members. https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/news/healthy-country-for-glossy-black-cockatoos
