Tasman Parakeet Recovery Project with World Parrot Trust

Thursday, June 08, 2017

The diminutive Tasman Parakeet (recognised by IUCN as Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae cookii) is Near Threatened/Appendix I in the wild, with a mere 50-100 mature individuals. Clearance of forests before 1950 for timber, agriculture and pasture and the degradation of foliage has severely reduced suitable habitat and nest-sites for these parrots. Recovery of the species has also been hampered by a low number of breeding females. Read More...

You Can Still Help the Parrots If You Are QUICK

Thursday, December 29, 2016

2016 is nearly over, but there is still time to help parrots. And right now your gift will be matched – DOUBLED – for parrots.


Help the Grey Parrots

Thursday, December 22, 2016

The CITES decision to end commercial trade in wild-caught Grey and Timneh parrots, and the subsequent uplisting to Endangered by the IUCN caps off a remarkable year of change.

It’s bittersweet though – good that these parrots will receive increased protection but deeply saddening that they do, in fact, need it.

Your past support for these two iconic parrots has been phenomenal and it’s helped us make huge strides forward. With our local and international partners we’ve supported the collection of critical information on their numbers in the wild, and uncovered the true scale of trade in the Congo basin. We have worked tirelessly to get this data to the right people, making sure that proper action is taken to protect these birds.
