Orange-bellied Parrot

​​​​​​With fewer than 50 birds remaining in the wild, the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot (Neophema chrysogaster) is one of Australia's most threatened bird species.

Surviving only as a tiny, single population, their last known breeding site is at Melaleuca in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. In the near future, this species is at risk of extinction in the wild.
