For our Australian members.

Lorikeets in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland are becoming paralysed, often resulting in death. Scientists are beginning to discover why - but need your help.

It sounds like it's been happening for multiple years?

I hope the source isn't malice, that would be terrible.

I feel like I’ve heard of this before, not sure where though.
It’s very sad :(
