Angela will never forget the time she first exhibited this image. She got asked if she styled his "hair" She proudly replied "No he did it all himself!"
This male Gang-gang (females are grey, but still have the cute hairdo!) resides at Adelaide Zoo and has a close bond with a female Gang-gang 12 years older than him!
Gang-gang Cockatoos are adversely affected by land clearing and the removal of mature trees (potential breeding hollow sites).
One population in NSW is listed as a threatened species.
Ethical photography notes: Angela photographed this cute Gang-gang in an aviary in Adelaide Zoo where she got special behind the scenes access for her Conservation/Bird Week series. She spent hours gently talking and interacting with him until she felt that she got the perfect inquisitive look she was trying to capture. No flash was used.
