July 9 Movie: Secrets at Sunrise saving the critically endangered Western Ground Parrot

Clinging to life in the Western Australian wilderness lives a bird so critically endangered that there's less than 150 remaining in the world. The Western Ground Parrot faces many hurdles if it is to survive predation by feral cats and foxes, habitat loss, climate change, and wildfires.

Yet there is hope! Two teams of scientists and community volunteers are battling to restore numbers. Researchers are working in the field to protect the wild population and bird breeding specialists at the Perth Zoo are desperately trying to establish a captive breeding program as insurance against extinction.

In late 2015 wildfires tore across the landscape destroying 90% of known habitat for the parrot and more recently additional wildfires earlier this year have done untold additional damage. In the aftermath, can the team help this extraordinary parrot avert extinction?

Come join us in a special viewing of Secrets at Sunrise, an 80 minute film developed with the assistance of the Friends of the Western Ground Parrot (http://www.western-ground-parrot.org.au/) detailing these efforts. This stunning film is not widely available, so this is likely your only opportunity to see it!
