Did you know that kookaburras mate for life? Female kookaburras will lay 2–4 eggs at a time. The whole family then helps to raise and protect the young. Trees are very important to the kookaburra’s survival because they use them to roost and nest in and to perch when hunting for prey. When trees are removed, kookaburras have fewer sites where they can breed and feed, and this can lead to a decline in their numbers.
