Banksia woodland

Banksia woodland is really important for Carnaby's cockatoos. The banksias, hakeas and other plants that make up the woodland provide nectar, seeds and grubs that are eaten by the cockatoos throughout the year.

The Banksia Woodlands of Perth's Swan Coastal Plain have recently been nominated as a Threatened Ecological Community under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.

Watch this video to learn more about them. The video was put together by the Urban Bushland Council.
