Listed as vulnerable, Glossy Black-Cockatoos feed almost exclusively on the seeds of nine species of Allocasuarina and Casuarina trees; however, feeding may be limited to one or two species within a given feeding area. They nest in large hollows and therefore require large old trees. The continuing loss of these large trees will have a detrimental effect on their ability to survive in the wild. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary breeds this species regularly and helps contribute to saving this species through education and our involvement in community days.
