About this book

This reference book on the Cockatoo family provides a comprehensive physical description of the various species of this exotic parrot, the habitat they favor, and their distribution and behaviors both in the wild and in captivity. Their reproductive history is examined, as is the possibility of breeding sufficient numbers in captivity to develop sustainable populations for re-introduction to their original habitat should they become extinct in the wild. The Cockatoos explores the historical encounters of the various species with Europeans two centuries ago. Their notes provide an interesting perspective of an era long past. That early history provides considerable insight to the Cockatoo's popularity and to efforts to breed them in captivity.

Many Cockatoo species face a perilous future. As their native forests are logged, the Cockatoos lose not only suitable nesting and roosting sites, but native foods. Additionally, despite conservation laws governing the capture of wild cockatoos, their desirability as an avian pet has spawned a worldwide illicit trade critically endangering some species to the point that they face extinction in the wild.
