塔斯曼尼亞的森林是極危雨燕鸚鵡重要的棲息地,牠們一直因人類發展導致失去棲息地,同時亦被外來物種蜜袋鼯所威脅。2015年一個研究估計,雨燕鸚鵡很大機會於十多年後絕種。最近再有計劃打算把40公頃的森林用作建設供魚業用的水壩、高爾夫球場及房屋,如計劃成功獲准進行將會對雨燕鸚鵡帶來更多的威脅。
 
tasmanian forest is an important habitat for the critically endangered swift parrots. their habitat had been lost because of human developments; they are also threatened by the invasive species, sugar gliders. an analysis in 2015 found that the swift parrot might become extinct within 16 years. recently, there are new proposal s to clear 40 hectares of the forest to build a dam for fish farm, a golf course and housing; if the proposals got approved, that will cause more threats to the swift parrot.
