Movies that Matter - The desperate plight of the orange-bellied parrot

  • Norma Richardson Hall St Mary's Anglican Church 15 Buckland Street Woodend, VIC, 3442 Australia (map)

The Orange-bellied Parrot is the most endangered parrot in the world. They breed over the summer in South West Tasmania and then cross the Bass Strait to spend the winter on the mainland coast. With less than 30 living in the wild, this timely documentary tells their story and the efforts to save this species from extinction. Aspects of their behaviour are shown on film for the first time and scientists working on the recovery efforts are interviewed. What is the future of this beautiful bird?
Filmmakers – David Neilson and Karen Alexander - will join us in Woodend for the screening and a Q & A.

7pm for 7.30pm start
