The workshops were set up in order to train participants in
developing their identification skills of the Glossy Black-Cockatoo and their
resources (i.e. feeding trees, nesting sites, drinking sites etc.), species
information, habitat protection and management as well as record keeping and
reporting procedures. 'Train the Trainer' was one of the primary objectives of
the workshop sessions, meaning participants of the workshop would be
adequately trained to offer support to local council and government agency
officers as well any community conservation group. By increasing
the skill base of the Conservancy and its partners it is hoped that it will
contribute to streamlining of record vetting, increased community awareness and
records collected as well as improve habitat and species management practices.
