The Atlas of Life, in conjunction with Canberra Nature Map and the OEH, launched the Mapping Glossy Black project in June this year. This is an ongoing project, building a picture of the distribution of this threatened species. 

So if you see Glossies in your area, please record them on the NatureMapr database. The more information we can gather, the more likely we are to be able to understand - and protect - this iconic species. For full details, including how to record your sightings, click the link below:


These photos, taken today, show a group of 5-6 Glossies feeding in a tall Allocasuarina littoralis.
