Saving the Regent Honeyeater project showing results

A long-running project to re-establish habitat for the rare Regent Honeyeater is showing positive results, thanks to dedication of volunteers and community members over the past 21 years. 

Volunteers from Birdlife Australia and Taronga Zoo, as well as local residents and landowners gather in May and August every year to plant trees for the Regent Honeyeater and other threatened bird species. 

Now, Regent Honeyeaters have been officially recorded for the first time on one of the earlier planted sites.
