Nest boxes swiftly installed

In July 2016, illegal wood harvesting at a site in Bucklands saw the destruction of numerous nesting trees used by critically endangered Swift Parrots. In an effort to help remediate some of this damage, we were glad to send out our regional NRM South/Landcare Tasmania GreenArmy team to help ANU researcher Dejan Stojanovic build and install a series of nest boxes throughout the area.The Green Army team put their woodworking skills to good use creating dozens of next boxes to install around the site. After collecting tree pulp to line the boxes, they were hoisted high in the tree tops with the help of professional tree climbers. We’re crossing our fingers that visiting swifties will be happy with these replacement homes!
