Numbers of endangered orange-bellied parrots soar worldwide

Apr 28, 2020 14:10 IST

The critically endangered orange-bellied parrot, native to Tasmania, is considered to be at risk of extinction within the next five years, according to scientists.. But, there's some good news now as more than 100 orange-bellied parrots have flown North from Tasmania after a successful first season of breeding at a built-in facility. It is the first time in a decade that the flock of birds has crossed 100 and this means that more birds will return back for the breeding season next spring.
