Buy Goffins Cockatoo Online
The Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) is a large white cockatoo that lives in the wooded areas of Australia and New Guinea as well as some of the islands of Indonesia. In some areas, they are sufficiently numerous to be considered pests due to the damage they can cause to cereal and fruit crops as well as newly planted tree seedlings or soft timber on houses and furniture.
This cockatoo lives in a wide range of habitats including cities but not areas that have few trees or highland parts. There are four subspecies: Tritons Cockatoo found in new Guinea and surrounding islands; Eleonora Cockatoo found on the Aru Islands between Australia and New Guinea; Matthews Cockatoo found in northern Australia and the Greater Sulphur-crested Cockatoo that is found from Cape York right down to Tasmania.
