Cape Parrot Big Birding Day
These endangered birds move between forest patches in the early mornings and evenings calling loudly and are a real treat to spot. With less than 600 left in the wild, it is important to observe population trends and distribution and do all we can to ensure their survival.
Join in, have some fun and do your bit for conservation.
