Range DescriptionParadisaea decora is restricted to Fergusson (1,340 km2) and Normanby (1,040 km2) in the D'Entrecasteaux archipelago of east Papua New Guinea. It has been described as fairly common (LeCroy et al. 1984); however, recently acquired information suggests that the population may number as few as c.650 individuals (D. Mitchell in litt. 2008). Surveys of two sub-populations indicate declines of c.20% from c.1997 to 2007 (D. Mitchell in litt. 2008).
