Orange Bellied Parrot

The Orange-bellied Parrot breeds only in coastal south-west Tasmania and spends the winter in coastal Victoria and South Australia. In Tasmania it occurs in buttongrass moorland interspersed with patches of forest or tea tree scrub. The Orange-bellied Parrot feeds almost exclusively on seeds and fruits, mainly of sedges, and salt-tolerant coastal and salt marsh plants. READ MORE


Numbat

The Numbat was originally widespread across southern semi-arid and arid Australia, from western New South Wales through South Australia and southern Northern Territory to the south-west of Western Australia. There are currently two native remnant populations in Western Australia and several reintroduced populations. The two small Western Australia populations were able to survive because both areas have many hollow logs that may serve as refuge from predators. READ MORE

Glossy Black-Cockatoo

The Glossy Black-Cockatoo (KI) inhabits woodlands that are dominated by Drooping Sheoak and often interspersed with taller stands of Sugar Gum. They feed almost exclusively on the seeds of Drooping Sheoak. It occasionally also feeds on the seeds of Slaty Sheoak and seeds of Acacia. But this extreme dependence on Drooping Sheoak for food makes this subspecies highly vulnerable to any process that might reduce the extent or availability of Drooping Sheoak dominated habitats.
