One of only three migratory parrot species in the world, the Orange-bellied Parrot (Neophema chrysogaster) migrates annually from coastal south-western Tasmania to south-eastern Australia every winter. It’s estimated that there are less than 50 Orange-bellied Parrots left in the wild. The parrot is threatened by loss of habitat and introduced cats and foxes. Zoos SA plays a key role in the recovery of this species through captive breeding at Adelaide Zoo. Zoos SA is represented on the Orange-bellied Parrot Recovery Team.

Our project partners include Birdlife Australia, Zoos Victoria, Taroona Breeding Facility, Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries and Water, and the Australian Government Department of the Environment.
