The Night Parrot declined severely in the late 19th-century, and was ‘missing’ for nearly a century. Since its rediscovery in western Queensland in 2013, we are slowly building knowledge of its ecology, the threats it faces, its status, and how to manage the landscape for its conservation. This project will build on research completed since 2013, focusing on: 1. advancing our understanding of Night Parrot ecology; 2. confirming the status of the species, and; 3. building the knowledge to allow land managers to make better decisions on how to conserve the parrot.
