Golden-shouldered Parrot wildlife art greeting card. Australian threatened species series.

Front of this card features a reproduction of an original colour pencil illustration by Joanne Pearcy.

On the back of the card is a paragraph about the illustrated wildlife:
Golden-shouldered Parrot
The Golden-shouldered Parrot was once found over most of Cape York Peninsula, but is now restricted to two populations on the Peninsula. This endangered parrot has a preference for tropical savanna woodland. Golden-shouldered Parrots, characteristically found in pairs or family groups of three to eight birds, make their nests in termite mounds. The shortage of food that occurs annually in the wet season is often made worse by a lack of burning and intense cattle and pig grazing. Since European settlement there has been a reduction in the number of intentionally lit fires and late dry season burning programs. Research suggests that this has resulted in a contraction of parrot numbers and distribution due to alteration of habitat. Appropriate fires are required to keep the grasslands open and promote wet season food availability.

Inside is blank for your personal message.
