Hi everyone

Some of you will be aware of this crowd sourcing attempt to save Norfolk Island's Green Parrot because you are members of both COG and of Birdlife Australia.

This is practical conservation project - establishing an insurance population on Phillip Island which lies just to the south of Norfolk Island and which is part of Norfolk Island National Park.

I encourage you to consider participating if you have not already done so.

Hey Con!

Today BirdLife Australia, Norfolk Island National Park and the local community have joined forces to launch a brand new initiative to save the island’s green parrots.

Because we know how much you love Australia’s native birds, we wanted you to be the first to know about our new campaign – Operation Green Parrot! 

We desperately need your help to raise at least $77,000 to get a second colony up and running on nearby Phillip Island.



      The Norfolk Island Green Parrot needs your support – it has already been saved from extinction twice!


This gives a window of March and April when the fledglings will be ready to transport by boat, before the winter kicks in and the boat crossing becomes more difficult.

And we’ve got some exciting and exclusive rewards on offer – including green parrot original artwork and limited edition prints, spotlighting tours with the Threatened Species Commissioner and opportunity for seven lucky couples to see the parrots on Norfolk Island for themselves.

So please, jump in early to secure your exclusive reward by clicking here and help us ensure this beautiful bird’s future.                                                  

Thanks for your support! 

Paul Sullivan CEO, BirdLife Australia
