Threatened Mallee birds seen in the Riverland and Mallee are going to get a helping hand, thanks to an important new project to protect their habitat.

Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin (SAMDB) is working together with land managers, partners and the wider community to help recover the habitats of a number of threatened Mallee birds.

Craig Gillespie form SAMDB said while each species is unique, the recovering Mallee birds project will focus on common threats to multiple species.

Mr Gillespie also said “The target species for this project are black-eared miner; Mallee emu-wren; Malleefowl; red-lored whistler; regent parrot; striated grasswren; and western whipbird
