Recently BirdLife Western Australia featured the western ground parrot in an article written by project officer Helena Stokes. Helena is hosted by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, Parks and Wildlife Service, South Coast Region and works closely with DBCA staff in implement recovery actions for the ground parrot.
Helena’s position has been funded through the Australian Government’s Bushfire and Wildlife Recovery Fund and has been assisting to implement recovery actions such as post fire survey and monitoring using Autonomous Recording Units and the recent (and first ever) translocation of the western ground parrot.
As BirdLife Western Australia doesn’t have a website currently, they have provided permission to place a copy of the article here for members and supporters to access. Click the link to the article below to read about the great collaboration between DBCA and BirdLife WA.
