Event description

Description

Be sure to attend the special screening of Jennene Riggs' brilliant film, 'Secrets At Sunrise'!

Filmed entirely in Western Australia, this documentary tells the fascinating story of a team of conservation experts and dedicated volunteers working together to save one of the world's rarest birds, the Western Ground Parrot.

The film captures the challenges of working in remote environments trying to save a cryptic bird which wasn't photographed in the wild until 2004 and whose numbers are likely less than 150 individuals; an enigmatic parrot that chooses to live on the ground, generally only making its presence known when it calls at dawn and dusk.

Western Australian filmmaker Jennene Riggs has spent the past three years following the team from remote Cape Arid National Park where the only known population of the critically endangered parrot was almost wiped out by devastating bushfires, to Perth Zoo where attempts are under way to breed the birds in captivity.

The screening will be held between 12:00pm and 1:30pm on Friday the 3rd of November, the first day of the three day Australasian Bird Fair & Wildlife Expo!

There is a $10 donation to book a spot at the screening and funds raised will go towards efforts aimed at helping the critically endangered Western Ground Parrot.

See you there!
