The Western Ground Parrot is Western Australia's rarest bird. It's listed as critically endangered, and there are less than 140 birds known to be alive in the wild.
Unlike other parrots, the bird nests on the ground which makes it particularly easy prey for foxes and feral cats.
Dave Taylor is the Chairman of the Friends of the Western Ground Parrot, and it's his passion to save this unusual bird.
