Recovery plan for the Golden Shouldered Parrot Psephotus chrysopterygius 2003-2007

pdfPlanning Document Release date:


The Golden Shouldered Parrot is a small granivore known for nesting inside termite mounds and at the time of this plan's development was restricted to just two small populations in central Cape York Peninsula.

The goals for this plan were to develop and implement land use strategies that would restore grassland and grassy woodland habitats to benefit fauna which the Golden Shouldered Parrot relies on and assist in the recolonisation of former known habitats to ultimately change the threatened species listing for the Golden Shouldered Parrot from endangered to vulnerable.
