Cockatoos are native to Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. All species of cockatoos are endangered in the wild, with the Moluccan, Lesser Sulphur-crested, Citron-crested, and Goffin's being the most seriously endangered of the species commonly kept as pets.

Cockatoos are extremely cuddly, affectionate, beautiful, and intelligent. They are also very emotionally complex, and improper care, diet, or stimulation can easily result in plucking or mutilation. Cockatoos are generally pretty good talkers, and they love to vocalize. They can be very noisy birds, sometimes screaming just because they like to. Owning a cockatoo requires a lot of work and can be frustrating at times, but can also be very rewarding.
