Black-Cockatoos: Ron Johnstone (WA Museum) talks about his latest research.   Ron Johnstone has been working on Black-Cockatoos for over 30 years and is an expert in the field. His work includes the Cockatoo Care Program, research on all three of southwest WA's Black-Cockatoos, the impacts of feral honey bees and the design of artificial hollows. Ron will give a talk on his latest research and the ways in which you can help Black-Cockatoos (plants, habitat restoration, etc).
