We need your help to guide how we manage little corella populations in South Australia.

What is being decided?

South Australia’s population of little corellas has significantly increased over the last 50 years. This is due to an increase in little corella attractive landscapes.

They have benefited from native vegetation clearance, agriculture and irrigation, and are now thriving in urban environments.

However, large populations of little corellas damage crops, recreational spaces, vehicles, electrical wiring and wooden structures, defoliate trees and cause a social nuisance.

The Department for Environment and Water have co-designed a draft South Australian Little Corella Management Strategy with 22 councils as well as other relevant stakeholders to help lessen the impact of this abundant species on the state, communities and landholders.

The co-designed strategy is underpinned by the decades of research into little corellas and bird management techniques, to strategically and humanely deal with the little corella impacts for the long-term.

We are now seeking your feedback on the draft South Australian Little Corella Management Strategy.

How can your input influence the decision? 

Your input will help finalise this draft strategy, which will help decide how we manage little corellas.

Get involved

To have your say, read the draft South Australian Little Corella Management Strategy and the factsheet and provide your feedback.

What are the next steps?
