A Tale of Two Cockatoos has been created to help publicise the plight of two endangered species of white-tailed black-cockatoos: Baudin's and Carnaby's. Both are found only in south-west Western Australia.
Although these two species are very similar in their appearance, biology and ecology, Baudin's receives far less in the way of conservation funding and support than Carnaby's.
Gill Ainsworth's PhD research explored how Baudin's and Carnaby's are valued by Australian society and discovered why Carnaby's is favoured over Baudin's. This video is based on some of her findings.
