The Gang-gang Cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum) are endemic to the coastal regions of south-eastern Australia and are the faunal emblem of the Australian Capital Territory. They are stocky birds with short tails and a wingspan ranging between 62-76cm. The Gang-gang call is likened to a creaking gate, or a cork being pulled from a bottle. As of July 2021, the population has declined by approximately 69 percent over the past 21 years. The species suffered significantly during the catastrophic 2019-2020 bush fires. As a result, they have now been listed as endangered.
