Orange-Bellied Parrots need our help
Every Summer the wild Orange-Bellied Parrot (OBP) 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.
In 2016 our Don’t Bag the Environment campaign asked for your support to help the recovery effort in place for 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 by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water, and Environment.
