Orange-bellied Parrot Information & ID Session

February 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


When: Tuesday 13th February 2024 – 10am til 11:30am

Meeting Point: 13th Beach Golf Club, 1732 Barwon Heads Road, Barwon Heads, 3227

The session will be held in the Faldo Room which is within the Clubhouse.

What: The Orange-bellied Parrot is one of only two migratory species in the world and is currently Critically Endangered. The Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar site contains important saltmarsh habitat that helps to support these parrots during their overwintering time in Victoria.

Orange-bellied Parrots are incredibly difficult to spot in the wild, not just because they are so rare, but because they look very similar to a few other species of parrot found in Victoria. Do you know how to tell them apart from a Blue-winged Parrot?

Join us for an educational session to learn how to confidently identify an Orange-bellied Parrot in the wild, what habitat they might be found in and what you can do to support their survival and help fight extinction.

Catering: Tea and coffee will be provided.

Additional Information:

There will be the potential for a short walk from the Faldo Room to nearby Orange-bellied Parrot habitat at the end of the educational session. If you would like to join this walk, we recommend you wear sturdy closed toed shoes. Please bring with you; hat, drinking water and sunscreen. If the weather becomes unfavourable or if Extreme or Catastrophic Fire Danger Ratings are declared, this walk WILL NOT go ahead.
