This month's conservation interview is on Fig Parrots. There are three different sub species. One of them is the Coxen's Fig Parrot and it is also known as the Double-Eyed Fig-Parrot. They are one of the world's most endangered animals with less than 250 left in the wild! There are around three populations of these birds from Bunderberg to the Queensland New South Wales Border in rainforest habitat.
Their main threat is the loss of habitat and nest hollow as they depend on them to raise their young in. But they are also threatened by the poisonous Vines Cat Claw which is a serious environmental weed.
To learn what Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is doing to help save this amazing species watch my interview below.
