In an exclusive podcast made for the World Parrot Trust Charlie Moores is in conversation with Christina Zdenek a Fulbright Scholar and wildlife biologist from California who has spent the past two years studying the Palm Cockatoo on Cape York Peninsula in northern Australia. Her work centered around developing non-invasive techniques of identifying individual parrots, so that the population can be more accurately tracked for future conservation efforts.
