Wildlife in Logan

We are lucky to have many native animals living in our backyards and natural areas. It is our job to make sure that we protect these natural resources for future generations to enjoy.

Logan is home to about:

  • 56 types of native mammals
  • 273 types of birds
  • 58 native reptiles
  • 27 native frogs
  • and lots of fish and insects.

Some of our local native animals are significant because there aren't many of them left in the wild. The Threatened Wildlife of Logan Brochure (PDF 7.1 MB) lists these animals.

Birds in Logan

The wide variety of birds in Logan provides a great range of bird-watching opportunities.

Logan is home to Australia's rarest species of cockatoo - the glossy black cockatoo. These birds are only found in eastern Australia.

We are part of the Glossy Black Conservancy group. The aim of this group is to raise community awareness and share knowledge about the glossy black cockatoo. We will use their research to help protect these rare cockatoos.

Each year you can help count our local glossy black cockatoo population.
