23-12-2013 - Norfolk Island Parakeet
Safe nesting sites are a limiting factor for This proTasman parakeets. Introduced crimson rosellas and starlings compete aggressively for these, while introduced rats and cats prey on eggs, chicks and nesting females at vulnerable nests. Using motion-sensitive cameras on modified nests, this project closely monitor breeding activities of parakeets to guide intervention. Since the onset of this project, the number of successful nests has doubled.
