Summer for Swifties – Swift Parrot Citizen Science Surveys

Critically Endangered Swift Parrots are breeding in Tasmania's forests - we are heading out to spot them for a citizen science project.


The critically endangered Swift Parrot is threatened by logging in its native forest habitat. Our Foundation is campaigning for the protection of all Swift Parrot habitat in secure conservation reserves.

This summer we are hosting a citizen science project to record Swift Parrots and our focus will be on the permanent logging zones where the parrots could be this season.

Once you have booked to attend you will hear from your survey leaders about the logistics, carpooling and where to meet.

Most surveys will be a full day out in the field, departing from Hobart at 8:30am.

We will be releasing more dates for surveys. So if you have missed out on these first surveys, there will be more.

Watch the videos below to get familiar with identifying Swift Parrots in Tasmania.
