Site description
The Bindoon-Julimar IBA supports at least 1% of the breeding population of the endangered Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo. The IBA boundaries are defined by native vegetation known or expected to support nesting and feeding birds in a number of reserves, private land and a Department of Defence training area in south-west Western Australia. Black-cockatoos nesting in this IBA utilise native plants as a food source but also utilise native vegetation on nearby road verges. This IBA supports the largest known population of breeding Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo. Native vegetation is in good condition and there are low numbers of nest competitors such as Galah, corellas and feral bees. Pasture, crops, non-native plants and weed species are excluded from the IBA. The area has a Mediterranean climate.

Key biodiversity
There has been a single recent record of the biome-restricted Regent Parrot in the IBA (Atlas of Australian Birds database).

Non-bird biodiversity: This large IBA is likely to contain a number of other threatened flora and fauna. Details of these are available from the Department of Environment and Conservation, Threatened Species and Communities Branch.
