This survey should take between 2-5 minutes.
This study is being conducted as part of the Clever Cockie Project by Dr Barbara Klump (Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior
and Dr Lucy Aplin (Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior and Research School of Biology, Australian National University) with Dr John Martin (Western Sydney University), and Dr Richard Major, (Australian Museum).
Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in the Sydney region have been observed to open bins to scavenge food. We are interested to learn where bin-opening is or has occurred. As such, we are also interested in where it does NOT occur - so please report this also. This study aims to try and understand where bin-opening started, how it spreads and whether securing bins can help manage the behaviour.
This survey consists of two parts. The first part asks about bin protection and the second part about direct observations of bin-opening by cockatoos.
We appreciate your willingness to help us by filling in this short survey, it should only take a few minutes. Thank you!
