Are there only ex-situ back up populations in N-Z at the breeding programme? Or also at Zoos? Are they in ex-situ out of N-Z and would it in the future possible they could come in an European ex-situ Breeding programme under the Wings of EAZA?

Timeline PhotosSaving the Helmeted Honeyeater from Extinction!

With the success of the Helmeted Honeyeater Recovery Team, supported by a great team of friends, more Helmeted Honeyeaters are breeding in the wild at Yellingbo than are being bred in captivity.

You are invited to come along and hear Bob Anderson speak about restoring habitat and potential future release sites.

The talk will be held at Beaconsfield Community Centre, O’Neil Rd, Beaconsfield on the 10 April at 2pm.

Timeline PhotosTomorrow 6 juvenile shore plover will be released from their aviary on Motutapu where they have been since arriving at around 30 days old in mid-Jan. It is hoped that their additional aviary time will better anchor them to Motutapu so they can add to the 4 pairs already present. 3 of the resident pairs have bred and produced a chick each so far this season. ...

Timeline PhotosOn Feb 9th Rose Collen and Malcolm Smith released 11 juveniles (from Mount Bruce) on a fine warm day at low tide, midday at Waikawa. It took quite a while for the birds to actually leave – one by one they came outside and walked around the aviary, exploring the grassy area nearby, before going back inside the aviary for food, water, rest etc. After about an hour of this, two birds left the aviary and flew off. Not wanting the others to miss the feeding opportunities of the low tide, Rose went inside the aviary to encourage them out and shut the door. After another 10 minutes of milling around and exploring the grass, 7 more flew to the west side of the island, leaving just two at the aviary. These two stayed by the aviary for the rest of the day, before eventually flying out and finding the others on the coast. We spotted most of them again that day, and all of them the next day, feeding and mixing with the locals.

Jamie Quirk took this photo of the DOC team unloading equipment on Waikawa to support the releases of shore plover.

Timeline PhotosIt seems there are 100 more reasons to flock to Ark in the Park New Zealand! They're releasing 100 pōpokatea (whiteheads) in the Waitakere Ranges later today, bringing the total number of birds released to 553. The Ark is a 2100 hectare open sanctuary that is trying to return the forest to what it might have been like before pests were introduced. Kimberley

Tieke (North Island saddleback) return to the islands of IpipiriForty tīeke (North Island saddleback) were welcomed to Ipipiri on Sunday by around 90 tāngata whenua and Project Island Song supporters. Twenty Saddleback/Tieke were released at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island and twenty more at Ohutopu (Homestead) Bay on Moturua. The birds arrived by helicopter from Mauimua (Lady Alice) Island, each to a powhiri and celebration of the latest species to be returned as part of the Project Island Song restoration.

Richard Robbins who coordinated the project was hugely relieved to see the first lot of birds land safely and fly out of their boxes onto their new island home. Dr Kevin Parker led the catching, caring, banding and release of the birds. Rana and Alvin Rewha from Te Rawhiti were part of the catching team on Mauimua. Rana and Kevin travelled to Ipipiri with the birds and Rana was able to oversee their release into Otehei Bay. Kevin carried on to Moturua and released the remaining birds into the same site that toutouwai were released last year.

A further forty tīeke will arrive in late May – this time from Tiritiri Matangi - and again be divided between the two Ipipiri islands. This will provide genetic diversity that should be useful for future populations elsewhere.

Thanks for all the support from DOC-Far North, Explore - Unique Experiences in Amazing Places, and the Air New Zealand Environment Trust

Timeline PhotosThanks Lotterywest!

Western Australia’s threatened black-cockatoos can breathe a little easier now. Facing imminent extinction, Baudin’s and Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos have been thrown a lifeline by the Barnett Government: Lotterywest has awarded a $255,000 grant to BirdLife Western Australia to fund a major ‘Cockies in Crisis’ conservation project.

And check out The Guardian article on the grant and how it will help the west's precious black-cockatoos here: www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jan/20/birdwatchers-crowdsourced-to-help-save-endangered-bla...

Timeline PhotosGreat news! Last year the we released the first orange bellied parrot we bred into the wild in south-west Tasmania. We were thrilled to hear today that he had been sighted at a feed table there yesterday. Hopefully he has found a cute female OBP and has started a clutch himself!

Shore Plover release Jan 2015At present there are 15 juvenile shore plovers in a temporary aviary at Islington Bay. Why? Because last time some of these very rare endangered birds which are very good flyers, left the island soon after they were released. Well, a few stayed, but the rest scattered and some were killed by rats or other predators on other islands. One couple did pair up and produced chicks on Motutapu. We are hoping after a week or so these newcomers will decided this is a good place to stay. ... See MoreSee Less
