Animal Pest Alert – Indian Ringneck Parakeet

The Indian Ringneck, or Indian Ring-necked Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), is also called the Roseringed Parakeet or African Ring-necked Parakeet. It is not native to Australia but it is widely kept here as a cage bird. The ringneck has significant potential to establish populations in Australia and become a pest so it is important to report any found in the wild.
Contains information on identification, distribution, pest potential and risk management.
