The Orange-bellied Parrot is Australia’s most endangered bird and one of the rarest birds on the planet. In the late 2000s it fell to fewer than 50 in the wild.

The species maintained that number until 2013/14, when captive-bred birds were released to the wild and 36 chicks fledged. The population may now be up to 79.

All proceeds from sales go towards research and conservation projects to help Orange-bellied Parrots.
