How are they going to show someone a Night Parrot ?
Walk in a line and kick every Spinifex bush to flush one.

It will only disturb them and make them shift to another location perhaps
outside the area preserved for them, not many bird live their life in the
I think the suggested raffle idea is the best, $5 or $10 a ticket, most
people would consider it a donation and if you are lucky enough to win it
give them a week with the crew working out there with the bird.
Run one every 6 or 12 months till the debt is cleared or at least the
interest is paid for.
I think more than just bird watchers would throw in for a ticket.
I can see the present idea is just defeating the purpose and they are on the
track to stuff up all the good work that has been done.
They have lived for hundreds of years without being disturbed, how do we
know how they will react to people trooping around their territory, it might
only be on
rare occasions but that might just be enough.
