Control of the Australian ringneck parrot by trapping in south-west Western Australia

This TREENOTE describes a two-year trial to gauge the effectiveness of trapping as a means of controlling the Australian ringneck parrot. The results show that in spite of the removal of more than 60,000 parrots by trapping, no regional scale reduction in parrot numbers or extent of damage was observed.
