The Norfolk Island Green Parrot was a common forest bird when Norfolk Island was settled by humans in the late 1700s, but after extensive clearing of trees and the introduction of feral predators, fewer than 50 individuals remained by the 1970s.

While land clearing on the Island has ceased, competition for suitable nesting sites with introduced species such as rosellas and common starlings is fierce, and predation from rats and feral cats remains a current threat. 

In recent years, the Norfolk Island Green Parrot population has responded well to recovery activities, even expanding beyond the borders of the Norfolk Island National Park to which its range had contracted.
