The ABC Network recently aired an informative and fascinating documentary about our native Australian parrots.
This documentary is called Australia: The Land of Parrots produced by multi-award winning, natural history filmmakers David Parer and Elizabeth Parer-Cook.

In June 2022, the Bird Advocacy Foundation’s very own patron Gislea Kaplan provided her knowledge on native parrots and how they are being impacted by urban sprawl and climate change. Gisela’s presentation can be viewed by clicking here.

The documentary Australia: The Land of Parrots shows how parrots have had to adapt as their landscape and environmental conditions have changed over time. Viewers can see huge flocks of parrots and cockatoos coming together for safety in numbers as they adapt to new landscapes sourced for survival. The evolution of Australian parrots and their ability to adapt to challenging environments is remarkable.

Across Australia there are a range of different types of parrots and cockatoos that can be spotted in a range of different environments, from the desert, bushland, rainforest to the city and coastal landscapes.  North, South, East and West, this documentary provides insights into the spectacular and bizarre behaviour of Australia’s wild parrots and cockatoos.
