This is the trailer for a film by Riggs Australia, which explores the passion and determination of the people who are dedicated to saving Western Australia's rarest bird - the western ground parrot - a species on the edge of extinction...
With the multitude of threats to their survival including wildfire, habitat loss, predation by feral cats and foxes, and the fact there's only 140 of them left, the remaining critically endangered parrots are perilously close to becoming the next entry on the extinct species list.
But there is hope! A dedicated and dynamic team of volunteers - the Friends of the Western Ground Parrot, together with a team of scientists from the Western Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife - have devoted their lives to monitor and protect these cryptic and secretive birds, in a desperate bid to restore numbers.
Can the team hold off the onslaught of threats long enough for the 5 priceless captive western ground parrots at Perth Zoo to begin breeding?
This is a desperate race against time...
