Parramatta River Red Rump Parrot
(PRRRP) - Nest Box Project

To Celebrate the 80th Birthday of the Avicultural Society of New South Wales (ASNSW), we have created a conservation trust as an on going legacy to supply Nest Boxes to parks and reserves spread around the iconic Parramatta River.

In conjunction with local councils and Olympic Park authorities we are suppling the PRRRP Nest Boxes to Councils to be allocated in specially placed locations in order to grow the habitat of these special little grass parrots and build the colonies currently found along the Parramatta River.

With the current housing expansion along the river of apartments and homes, the habitat with hollow trees for bird nesting has diminished. The ASNSW legacy aims to create 500 new homes for these beautiful grass parrots to grow their numbers and offer the families that are moving in along the Parramatta River with the opportunity to see these beautiful birds surrounding them in local parks and reserves and hear their melodic calls.

The ASNSW over 2020 will be placing 500 of these specially made PRRRP Nest Boxes from the historical Parramatta Park along both sides of the Parramatta River to Hunters Hill.

We will be putting in place a specially designed bird monitoring program to watch every specially numbered PRRRP Nest Box and this information will be added under the Conversation tab that you a currently viewing.
