If you have been watching the news lately you may have seen captive-bred Regent Honeyeaters being released into the wild with small radio transmitter attached to their backs. There is no guarantee that you will see these birds during the planting weekend but you will learn more about the importance of woodland habitat for them and other animals. You will also be planting future habitat for threatened woodland species – even common species like kookaburras seem to be in decline. Venturers who participate in the whole weekend can achieve their Venturer level Environment badge.
Some very exciting news for all who have been involved in the Regent Honeyeater weekends, the bird has been spotted in the areas planted by Scouts over the last few weeks, so we have great success for this project.
