Securing a shared future for wildlife and people

We introduced the Regent Honeyeaters from Adelaide to our Regents and now they are all living together.

We also asked the rest of the zoo's staff members down to the bird department for a bbq lunch. This gave us the chance to tell our friends at the zoo what we are doing with the Regent Honeyeaters. We also asked staff to bring in nectivorous flowers, such as grevilias and banksias over the next few weeks, as it is time that we get the birds used to what they will be eating in the wild. Up until now their main diet has been wombaroo (a powdered nectar substitute, which we mix with water).
