Loggers target Cockatoo home
Loggers have moved in ahead of schedule on one of the few remaining habitats of the Western Australian Black Cockatoo robbing environmentalists of the chance to fight for the bird’s habitat. Tony McManus spoke to Jess Beckerling regarding the unexpected move.
How many times have we heard that one bfeore? Hiring the Fox to take of the chicken? These Ecochondriacs will never never never give up and let alone stop….they cannot do so as this is how they get $$$$ and make a living. ” The environmental groups also will gain access to caribou habitat for study as part of the deal.” Is this what we have become?The forest industry is giving up to Blackmail and now will pay these rejects? shame on you!Apih Saturday 11 February, 2012 - 7:13 AM
please stop logging our native forests. Save our flora & fauna pleasejulie Thursday 2 February, 2012 - 8:43 PM
whatever the (probably multiple) causes that are threatening the survival of the black cockatooes needs to be addressed rather arguing about who's right and who is wrong- we need to create sanctuaries and do what is needed to protect them.a apadovan Monday 30 January, 2012 - 7:14 AM
People with an interest in our native black cockatoos should do some homework, like read "Karrak-watch: The red tailed black cockatoo", not accept as gospel the ill-informed preachings of the WA Forest Alliance.
This summary of scientific studies shows that the real threats to this species are not logging, but wildfire, clearing for agriculture, feral bees and the brush tailed possum. Drought is also no doubt a factor right now, but something over which we have little control.Woodsman Friday 27 January, 2012 - 2:23 PM
Tony - are you Jess' bunny? How about challenging some of her extravagant claims. Do you really think that cutting 400 hectares of forest, including leaving thousands of habitat trees, will threaten the survival of cockatoos? Remember there are about 1.4 million hectares of forests in reserves when there is no harvesting. REmember all the old growth is protected. Do your job and don't become a patsy for the green movement.Axel Thursday 26 January, 2012 - 6:17 AM
@ faye - Your understanding of the situation of all three of WAs black cockatoo species is appalling.
It's not 'the greens'who are saying that these birds are threatened, it's scientists and the government itself.
Carnaby's Black Cockatoo, Baudin's Black Cockatoo and Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoo are all on the federal government's threatened species list. No action taken by the government to date has reversed or slowed this and in fact, it's getting worse very fast.
The most urgent calls for their protection is coming from specialised cockatoo carers, whose every day is spent looking after sick, injured and starving birds. They are saying that they have never had so many starving birds to look after. Also, they know the general habits, behaviour and movements of these birds very well. It's part of their business.
You need to get educated on the issue and not accept hearsay and chinese whispers from anti-green conservatives, who care about nothing more than their own comfort and financial situation and bugger everything else that gets in the way.Frosty Fruitbat Wednesday 25 January, 2012 - 9:14 AM
