Supporting Lorikeet Paralysis Syndrome research
Lorikeets in northern NSW and southern QLD are becoming paralysed, often resulting in death. Scientists are beginning to discover why - but need your help.

Researchers from the University of Sydney identified the prevalence, distribution, and manifestation of lorikeet paralysis syndrome (LPS) – a seasonal disease (October to June) that affects thousands of rainbow lorikeets each year.

In this session, Professor David Phalen from the University of Sydney will introduce you to the research on lorikeet paralysis syndrome and its impact on our native wildlife.

“The number of cases each year ranges from hundreds to thousands, making it one of the most important wildlife diseases and animal welfare concerns in Australia,” said Professor Phalen.

Join us and find out how you can help your local lorikeets by becoming a citizen scientist.

This important project examining lorikeet paralysis syndrome would not be possible without the generous support of the New South Wales Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES).
