Corella Management 2021

Published on Monday, 1 February 2021 at 12:00:00 AM

The following species of Corella have been listed as a managed fauna in the Toodyay Local Government district in the Biodiversity Conservation Regulations 2018:

  • Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea)                                 
  • Butlers Corella (western corella (northern and central Wheatbelt subspecies) (Cacatua pastinator derbyi) (Cacatua pastinator butleri)
  • Eastern long billed Corella (Cacatua tenuirostris)

These species of Corella have been identified as having a negative and destructive impact through noise issues, amenity loss and financial costs to councils, businesses, farmers and residents in Western Australia.

The Corellas also have a negative impact to many of our endemic/native animal breeding habits and therefore may have an impact on their survival.

Over the next couple of months, the Rangers will be firing towards flocks of the Corellas using non-lethal blanks to help with Corella management within the Shire of Toodyay.

Please contact the shire of Toodyay Rangers on 97574 9370 if you have any questions in relation to the management.
