Farms or Conservation?

By the end of March 1983, the State Government had changed from Liberal to Labour and there was to be an enquiry into Land release for agriculture. However the North Fitzgerald was so close to release that that program was to continue to the dismay of those anxious about the Western Ground Parrot.

Surveying for Ground Parrots by call had begun, thanks to information received from the Jordans at Barren Grounds in New south Wales, including a tape recording (Blog entry February 1, 2014). The time that Richard Jordan suggested to listen in the evening, based on experience of the Eastern Ground Parrots was sunset to 30 minutes after. We did not yet realise that that timing was incorrect for the Western Ground Parrots.
