About Friends of the Western Ground Parrot Inc.

We are a volunteer based community group which formed in Albany in 2003, at a time when it had become very obvious that the Western Ground Parrot (Kyloring) was in serious decline. In 2009 we became incorporated and have since become a registered charity listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations.

The main aim of our organisation is to raise awareness about the threat of extinction facing the parrots. With a remotely located population estimated to be less than 150 birds, it is one of the rarest parrots in the world. This population is constantly threatened by wild fires and introduced predators such as feral cats.

We also raise funds for Recovery Plan projects and lobby for government support. We are a member of the South Coast Threatened Birds Recovery Team and assist the Western Australia Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions in its recovery actions.
