It's conservation status in New South Wales is 'vulnerable'. A 'vulnerable' species is likely to become endangered unless the circumstances and factors threatening its survival or evolutionary development cease to operate.
Here are some photos of one taken from the verandah of our house. It was busy eating the fruit of a white cedar.
What needs to be done to recover this species?
- Plant locally-occurring fruit-bearing trees and shrubs.
- Protect remnant rainforest patches during burning-off activities.
- Retain forested corridors that link east to west migration routes.
- Encourage and initiate weed control programs.
- Protect known and potential food trees.
- Protect rainforest and moist forest habitat.
- Initiate and support rainforest regeneration projects.
