ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effect of the plan of Forestry Tasmania to clearfell and burn a section of Tylers Hill on the swift parrot. According to the Swift Parrot Breeding Season Survey Report 2007/2008 conducted by the Threatened Species Section of the Tasmanian government's Biodiversity Conservation Branch, the swift parrot was found in high concentrations in this area. Environmental groups have won victory when the logging of the Wielangta coupe has been postponed until the end of the swift parrot breeding season.
