Woodland Birds

Woodland bird populations are declining rapidly, with more than 40 species at risk of extinction. The Woodland Birds Program aims to stop and reverse this trend before it's too late.

The Woodland Birds Program aims to enhance the conservation of all threatened and declining woodland species. We do this through either single-species recovery work (e.g. Swift Parrot, Regent Honeyeater and Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo recovery projects) or multi-species projects like Birds on Farms.

Protect Swift Parrots Forever

Swift Parrots are one of the only parrots in the world that migrates every year, making the long journey from Tasmania to mainland Australia in search of flowering gum trees. Yet, bushfires and continued native forest logging threaten this incredible bird's existence.

Swift Parrot

The Critically Endangered Swift Parrot is mostly bright green, with a dark-blue patch on the crown. Breeds in Tasmania and migrates to the mainland for winter.
