Several years in the making, this feature-length documentary about the dramatic efforts to save one of Australia's rarest birds from extinction is now available on DVD and as a download version.
The film captures the challenges of working in a remote environment trying to save an enigmatic bird which wasn't photographed in the wild until 2004. The parrot, which chooses to live on the ground and only makes its presence known when it calls at dawn and at dusk, came dangerously close to being wiped out in 2015 when bushfires scorched 90% of its known habitat.
Esperance filmmaker Jennene Riggs, who was involved in the production of The Search of the Ocean's Super Predator, was granted exclusive access allowing her to follow a team of conservation experts and volunteers working together to save the Western Ground Parrot.
