These birds are endemic to Australia but have sadly become a rare sight in the wild. They are classified as being "endangered in the wild" by the IUCN; it is estimated that there are fewer than 2,500 mature individuals remaining in the wild, though there are tens of thousands bred in captivity for the pet trade and kept by aviculturists.
