Orford Primary School pupils plant 100 trees for swift parrot habitats

More than 35 Orford Primary School pupils have joined the fight to save the swift parrot. 

The group planted more than 100 plants with the help of the local Conservation Volunteers Australia members. 

“The program is focused on not only improving habitat and supporting a wild future for the Swift Parrot but also, a very important element of the program is community engagement,” CVA regional manager Amy Bailey said. 

“We understand the significance and impact the local community can have.”

The plants will be direct habitats for the parrot and other species that support the local environment. 

Volunteers also tackled some weeds threatening the area’s biodiversity.
