Native to Australasia
Rainbow Lorikeets are nectivores -they have specialised tongues to allow them to harvest nectar from flowers in their native habitat
Threat Level: Least Concern
Rainbow Lorikeets are common and widespread throughout their range. There are no known threats to their population numbers at present. However, capture for the pet trade could become a serious threat. The continued habitat loss in their range could also become a future threat
Here at the zoo we have a flock of over 20 rainbow Lorikeets. Come and see them up close in our daily Lorikeet Feed encounters where you get a chance to feed them some of their favourite nectar. Meet Huber (the one with a yellow breast) who is extra friendly.
