The Orange-bellied Parrot is one of Australia’s most threatened birds and is at real risk of extinction in the wild in the short term. Orange-bellied Parrot populations are in decline due to habitat loss, feral predators, noxious weeds and disease. The Orange-bellied Parrot is officially classed as critically endangered.

Wild populations of Orange-bellied Parrots are closely monitored and managed by the relevant conservation partners. In the breeding habitat of this species, nest boxes are provided and maintained, predators and competitors are managed, and supplementary food is provided.
