How birdkeepers are helping to save the orange-bellied parrot

The orange-bellied parrot is a small grass parrot found on the south-eastern coast of mainland Australia and the island state of Tasmania. It is listed on the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered.
There are less than a hundred orange-bellied parrots left in the wild, down from an estimated 180 as noted in the Action Plan for Australian Birds 2000
But now, thanks to the efforts of birdkeepers in Tasmania, a further 50 could be released later this year.
You can find out more about the planned mainland recovery project via the Birds Australia website.
This Wikipedia page (where we sourced the picture above) also has a good summary of the bird's current situation.
