Have your say: Take the WA Pest Parrot and Cockatoo Management Strategy Survey

Published on Monday, 13 March 2023 at 9:00:00 AM

Certain parrot and cockatoo species are known to cause extensive damage to crops and infrastructure in both rural and urban areas of Western Australia, including here in Toodyay. As a result, they have been declared pests under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 and are subject to active management control.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is currently developing a Pest Parrot and Cockatoo Management Strategy for WA to help guide the effective management of pest birds.

DPIRD is seeking your feedback to help inform this strategy, via a WA Pest Parrot and Cockatoo Management Strategy Survey. Input is encouraged from stakeholders and the general community, and will provide an understanding of your experiences with pest birds and expectations regarding future control efforts throughout the State.

Birds of interest in the survey include the Rainbow lorikeet, Sulphur-crested cockatoo, Indian ringneck parakeet, Galah, and Western corella. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and all responses are confidential.

You can take the survey online here until March 31.
