Orange-bellied Parrot

Don’t Bag the Environment from December 2016 

Orange-bellied Parrots need our help

Every Summer the wild Orange-bellied Parrot population gathers at Melaleuca, in Tasmania’s remote South West Wilderness. before migrating to the mainland for Winter.  The population, which is now less than 70 individuals, is monitored by dedicated volunteers from the Wildcare group, Friends of OBP.



We need your support

Help us to assist the recovery of these critically endangered, precious and beautiful birds.


The Friends of OBP group coordinates volunteers and assists with research activities under the National Orange-bellied Parrot Recovery Plan.  The OBP Tasmania Program is governed through the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment.
