Transcript of Regent Honeyeater
Where Can You Find The Honey Eater?
If the Honeyeater died out, what would happen to the ecosystem?
I would imagine that if these birds die out, then bees would be found alot more, as tey have knocked out this competition for flower nectar. Also big birds wold turn to feeding on the other birds more, meaning more fighting for food and a possible extintion of other birds.
Why is it considered an endangered species?
The Honeyeaters are critically endangered because of the loss, deforestation of their habitat. This effects their access to food e.g. flower nectar, fruit, sap and sometimes insects.
Which organisation (if any) is involved in protecting this species? Do they offer suggestions as to how this species could be saved from extinction?
Melbourne Zoo is breeding Regent Honeyeaters to help their population rise and not be as close to the risk of extinction. There is also a group called the Regent Honeyeater Project determind to help this endangered bird

How can you help?
You can help by volunteering for groups such as the Regent Honeyeater Project. Tr donating or finding out mmore about the wipe for wildlife program or join Act Wild. You can help many animals including the Regent Honeyeater.
Population of the regent Honeyeater dropped 140 in spring 2005- 40 in spring 2006.
The birds seem to breed easily in captivity.
It is a small 'mystery' where the Regent Honeyeater goes when they aren't breeding.

Describe its habitat. Remember to include environment factors (biotic and abiotic) and how it lives.
The regent honeyeater mostly lives in the open forests of the inland slopes and temperate woodlands of south eastern Australia.
The biotic factors of Temperate woodlands include a lot of deciduous trees growing their leaves in spring and then fall in autumn, also grasses, shrubs, many different types of flowers and ferns and lots of adult trees that provide canopy cover and plenty of mistletoe for nest location. Honeyeaters prefer ironbark and also found in woodlands of box, yellow gum, swamp mahogany and river oak.
The abiotic factors of Temperate woodlands are placed in parts of the world that include short cold winters, warm summers and rainfall levels that are normally regular through the year.
The Regent Honeyeater can be found in most of Victoria, about half of New South Wales and the low South South East of Queensland.
Can you describe a food chain and food web this species is part of?
Food chain: Flower nectar is eaten by Regent Honeyeater, Regent Honeyeater is eaten by large birds
Food Web: Flower nectar and insects is eaten by Regent Honeyeater, Regent Honeyeater is eaten by large birds and cats (feral).
What is being done to ensure it does not become extinct?
Zoos such as Melbourne zoo and Toronga Zoo are breeding these birds in captivity to increase population. Also some groups apart of the Regent Honeyeater Recovery Program are researching the bird's habitat and 'reproductive biology', and collecting other data on the birds.
