Helping landowners help our endangered birds
Regent Honeyeaters (Anthochaera phrygia) and Swift Parrots (Lathamus discolor) are two of North East Victoria’s most endangered birds. Bush for Birds is a five-year project funded by the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program that aims to help landowners create and improve habitat to help these birds to thrive.
North East CMA is working together with Trust for Nature and other key partners to deliver this project, which will address the key threats for the species in North East Victoria. Success in recovery of these endangered birds, which have been identified as priority species in the Australian Government’s Threatened Species Strategy Action Plan 2015-16, will rely greatly on improved quality and quantity of woodland habitat.
