Feature Expedition

SUPERB PARROTS IN THE ACT – breeding success and hollow competition THR32b(100) - General Settings

Camera TrapsACT Parks and Conservation Service

This project involves detailed monitoring of superb parrot nests located in the Australian Capital Territory. The superb parrot is an iconic Australian woodland bird currently listed as threatened (Vulnerable). The superb parrot is threatened by climate change and the ongoing loss of critical breeding habitat, specifically large hollow-bearing trees that they need for nesting. Our research aims to track the breeding success, and nest hollow competition of superb parrots in the ACT: an important breeding region for the species. Data gathered by this project will assist land managers to protect this beautiful bird and ensure that it has the resources it needs to persist in the Bush Capital
