Tragically, beauty is one of the reasons this rare bird is endangered today.
Many believe the Gouldian Finch to be the most beautiful bird in Australia — if not the world. What do you think?
Across northern Australia, their population dropped from hundreds of thousands to an estimated 2,400 left in the wild. Their striking plumage made them attractive to the aviary bird trade. Before a ban was finally put in place in the 1980s, they were trapped and sold without a thought given to their future.
Despite the ban, their wild population hasn’t recovered and they remain endangered today. What’s holding them back now is threats to their natural habitat from introduced species and changes in fire patterns.
