Difficult Birds: Saving Australia’s Most Endangered

Monday 5th December / presented by Jessica Warriner

Sometimes we face times where it’s difficult to get our own lives together, but what happens when birds can’t get it together?

Several species of birds, including the orange-bellied parrot, are dying out because they lack the survival instincts needed to live in the wild.

Enter the Difficult Bird Research Group, a group of scientists based at the Australian National University studying the country’s most endangered birds and finding ways to prevent their extinction.

Ross Crates from the Difficult Bird Research Group joined Jess on The Mag to give some insight into the bird’s plight, and what we can do to help.
