Our Regent Honeyeaters

In the mid-1990s, as part of the National Recovery Program, Regent Honeyeater chicks were collected from the woodlands of Chiltern, Victoria and the Capertee Valley, New South Wales.

Our captive breeding program has produced a number of healthy generations. Individuals from the group can be seen in our “Wollemi” walk through exhibit and more than 50 have been released to the Ironbark woodlands of Chiltern, Victoria. It is this group of released birds that we hope will mix with wild individuals to help establish healthy wild populations.
