Regent Honeyeater Tree Planting
In recent years a prime conservation focus has been extending the habitat of the critically endangered Regent Honeyeater.
Working with landholders and volunteers, the Capertee Valley Regent Honeyeater Recovery Program has planted over 100,000 trees in the valley, on private property. A 2008 survey found 86 species of birds in these planted areas, with six of these being rare and/or endangered. Tree-planting weekends are held each spring and autumn and new volunteer tree-planters are always welcome; no experience necessary. For more information about volunteer tree-plantings in the Capertee Valley contact Birdlife Australia (Sydney office) on 02 9647 1033.
