Program: Woodland Birds

Regent Honeyeater Release

Since 2008, hundreds of zoo-bred Regent Honeyeaters have been released into the wild — a strategy that's working, with many of the birds not only surviving, but breeding.

Widespread habitat destruction has wreaked havoc on the Regent Honeyeater. These beautiful birds were once found in abundant numbers across south-eastern Australia, but now they’re perilously close to extinction.
