This small flock of parrots reside at the Australian Reptile Park. They are part of a managed breeding program.
There are only about 20 pairs of OPB's currently left in the wild.
This grass parrot is one of Australia's most threatened species. It is protected under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (1999). It is listed as Critically Endangered.
To help conserve the Orange Bellied Parrot, we will be donating 25% of sales to the Endowment of the Difficult Bird Research Group, who are part of the Australian National University.
The purpose of the Endowment is to support conservation research conducted by the Difficult Birds Research Group (DBRG) into endangered and future-endangered Australian birds, with specific focus on rare and highly mobile species that are difficult to study.
The research will focus on: (i) the collection of critical population and breeding data across multiple spatial scales to update and improve the conservation status of DBRG study species, (ii) the protection, restoration and enhancement of habitats critical to DBRG study species, and (iii) direct, intensive and immediate recovery actions to prevent the extinction of DBRG study species.
