CVA weeding and planting for Red-tails


CVA are continuing their good work with the Red-tails. This group from Taiwan and South Korea have braved the cold weather to pull weeds and plant stringybarks over 10Ha of private land near Casterton Victoria.


The ongoing support from CVA has seen 1000's of trees planted and almost 100Ha of land managed by weed control in the past year.

The work is part of the CVA Wild Futures project and is expected to continue for the next year.

    Why can’t we keep our endangered Red-tails?

    Current regulations require a specialist permit to keep Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos. This is because of the five sub-species of Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo that occur across Australia, two of these, including our very own South-eastern sub-species, are nationally threatened.
