Discovery of the Night Parrot Presentation – 23rd July, 2014

Once widespread throughout Australia, the Night Parrot was considered extinct with no confirmed sightings for over 100 years. After years of searching, Naturalist John Young has turned the birding world upside down with confirmed sightings of this iconic species and shared the ups and downs of his 15 year quest at a presentation featuring SC Co Founder Graham Pyke.

As an eminent bird ecologist, Graham Pyke discussed the implications the discovery has for conservation management in Australia and why we must act quickly to protect what was, until recently, thought lost.
