Over the last 10 years the COCKATUBE ® nesting box has been researched and developed by Landcare SJ Inc. in co-operation with the WA Museum, the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW) and people with a passion to help these critically endangered birds.

The COCKATUBE ® nest box has been designed specifically for the 3 species of Black Cockatoo found in Western Australia, but is suitable for Black Cockatoo species Australia wide.

With some maintenance the COCKATUBE ® is expected to last over 50 years.

Landcare SJ can provide a full installation service or installation advice.

You can install the  COCKATUBE ® yourself and Installation Guidelines are available at purchase.

Generally a cherry picker or tree climber (preferably an arborist) will be required. The corrugated cockatubes are much lighter than the solid ones and so are easier to install.
