Rare Opportunity to see Princess Parrots

The Central Land Council has been instructed by a key traditional owner of
the area in which princess parrots are currently nesting to issue a limited
number of permits for people to join him on a series of visits to the site.

Permits will be available to:

- groups of between 5 and 12 people

- commercial birding companies wishing to organise groups of the same size.

Day trip access to the princess parrot site (west of Alice Springs) is offered 
a traditional owner fee of $450 / person. Visitors will be accompanied by the
traditional owner. All other costs and arrangements (e.g. travel to and from 
the site,
accommodation, food etc.) are to be met by participants.

Site visits will be available on the following dates:

Monday 22nd November
Wednesday 24th November
Friday 26th November
Monday 29th November
Wednesday 1st December
Friday 3rd December

Parks and Wildlife scientists, who are conducting research on the parrots at
this site, have confirmed that the birds are still present.

For further details, to organise permits and for more information on permit 
conditions, please contact:
