Project 6.2.3 The Alligator Rivers yellow chat is a small, bright yellow insectivorous subspecies of bird living on the floodplains of several major rivers in the ‘Top End’ of the Northern Territory including within and nearby Kakadu National Park. Despite its listing as Endangered, little research has been conducted on the bird and its habitat requirements and major threats are not well understood. This project aims to increase the ecological knowledge we have of the Alligator Rivers yellow chat in order to improve its conservation management.
