Saving swift parrots and threatened woodlands species

Swift parrots (Lathamus discolor), are one of Australia’s rare species of parrot and are listed as critically endangered under Australian Government legislation. It is estimated that less than 2,000 birds live in the wild. Without conservation efforts, this iconic species could be extinct in as little as 16 years.

This project aims to improve the long-term viability of nationally endangered swift parrot’s and co-occurring threatened species through the planting of habitat and protection of mature feed trees.

Riverina Local Land Services is offering funding to support landholders to protect, restore and establish swift parrot habitat within the Wagga Wagga local government area (LGA).
