The swift parrot is a critically endangered species of migratory bird which breeds in Tasmania in summer. It face multiple threats which include a reduction in habitat availability and quality, lack of food resources, lack of nesting hollows and predation by sugar gliders in breeding areas. Traditional conservation actions have failed to prevent the species from declining rapidly. This project is undertaking research to better understand the threats they face, and is developing and trialling innovative new methods to tackle these threats. The aim is to prevent the extinction of the species and to recover numbers.
