Little Corellas may be a native bird species in South Australia but they are listed as ‘unprotected’ and are seen to be a nuisance by many.

Ecologist Jason Van Weenen from the Department of Environment joins Jennie Lenman to talk about the need to strike a balance.


The Rural City of Murray Bridge has given the green light on a range of measures to disturb Little Corella flocks in the region. Read more on our local news page and you can find out more about the State Government's strategy at the Department of Environment website.
