The rate of extinction of birds and animals in Australia is high. The Regent Honeyeater is not a statistic yet but is so very close and hence classified as critically endangered. The reason for the decline in bird numbers has been attributed to the loss, fragmentation and degradation of their natural habitat. Taronga Zoo Sydney along with other supporting institutions has conducted a successful conservation program for these birds for many years. Reference for this painting came from Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Queensland and the Reptile Park New South Wales. I produced this painting as a donation for the 2018 Taronga Zoofari Gala Fundraiser.
