The Blue Mountains is a World Heritage National Park. The most globally important value of the Greater Blue Mountains is the area's representation of ecosystems dominated by eucalypts. The eucalypt forest communities of the region are the most diverse and intact scleromorphic (hard-leaved) forests in the Earth's temperate zone.
A passerine is any bird of the order Passeriformes, which includes more than half of all bird species. Known as perching birds or songbirds, passerines are distinguished from other orders of birds by the arrangement of their toes (three pointing forward and one back), which facilitates perching.
A non-passerine is a bird not belonging or relating to the order Passeriformes. Examples of non-passerine birds are: parrots (2 toes each way), and emu (3 toes, all forward). Their feet are multi-functional like parrots who walk, perch and use their feet to manipulate their environment & tools.
Each bird has been labelled with a conservation status according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species 2018.

Our primary objective is to promote the conservation of native birds and their habitats through education, conservation science, advocacy efforts and diverse projects.
Birds are essential to maintaining the balance in our ecosystem. The feeding relationships among all the animals in an ecosystem help prevent any one species from becoming too numerous. Many birds are important in plant reproduction too, through their services as pollinators and/or seed dispersers. Through education we can all learn how to provide habitat and identify threats to assist our native birds to thrive and survive.
