Please join us for the screening of the Orange-bellied Parrot film “The Desperate Plight of the Orange-bellied Parrot” at the Reardon Theatre in Port Fairy.
We’re also excited to announce that the film makers, David Neilson and Karen Alexander, as well as Rachel Pritchard from the OBP Recovery Team will be available for some Q & A after the screening.
The Orange-bellied Parrot is the most endangered parrot in the world. They breed over the summer in South West Tasmania and then cross Bass Strait to spend the winter on the mainland coast. With less than 30 living in the wild this timely documentary tells their story and the efforts to save this species from extinction. Aspects of their behaviour are shown on film for the first time and scientists working on the recovery efforts are interviewed.
What is the future for this beautiful bird? – come along and find out…

This screening is organised as part of the OBP winter monitoring program in south west Victoria. The program is undertaken by Nature Glenelg Trust in close partnership with BirdLife Australia and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. The program is funded by the Victorian Government Biodiversity On-ground Actions program.
