Program: Woodland Birds

Threatened Mallee Birds

Home to a number of threatened birds, ‘The Mallee’ is a semi-arid zone centred on the Murray Mallee region of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. It supports extensive and intact old-growth Mallee vegetation, although it has been affected by widespread habitat clearance and bushfires.

The Murray–Mallee region of Victoria, NSW and South Australia supports semi-arid habitat that is crucial for several threatened species.
