Regent Honeyeaters

Fewer than 400 Regent Honeyeaters remain

Save the Regent Honeyeater from extinction.
From flocks of thousands, as few as 400 remain.
Dear supporter,
Did you know most Regent Honeyeaters spotted today are only seen singly, in pairs or tiny flocks?
The largest group in any one location this year has been 6 Regents. That was from our latest surveys.
Compare this to the start of the 1900s. That’s when flocks of thousands were recorded.
In little more than 100 years…
Due to excessive land clearing and woodland habitat destruction…
Now only less than 400 Regent Honeyeaters may be left! 
That makes this species Critically Endangered… 
Just a step away from becoming Extinct.
You may have already seen my letter about the Spring Appeal to help save birds like the Regent Honeyeater. If you’ve already donated, then thank you. Your generosity is very much appreciated.
Otherwise, I urge you to give today. Your gift will be used to preserve and protect the remnant woodlands left for this remnant bird population.
The Regent Honeyeater needs your help.
And it’s not just Regent Honeyeaters you’ll be saving… but Endangered birds like the Swift Parrot and Forty-spotted Pardalote too.Thank you for heeding the call of birds like the Regent Honeyeater.
