Nature Kids: Winter 2020

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.”


Reuse & Upcycle Art!

Bring nature inside on a winter day by making a toilet paper or paper towel roll bird.
Use glue or sticky tape and leftover paper to make a yellow, black & white Regent honeyeater.
Or use concertina folding to make a cockatoo.

Did you know?

  • The Regent Honeyeater is a critically endangered bird species. Its numbers have declined due to urban development and the loss of woodland habitat.
  • Regent Honeyeaters favour certain types of trees, especially those which are large and old in good soil, including white box and yellow box, spotted gum and river she-oaks.
  • Before the 2019-20 bushfires, less than 400 birds remained in the wild and there are now estimated to be fewer than 250, after the bushfires affected breeding and feeding habitats.
  • This honeyeater was once called the ‘Warty-faced Honeyeater’.
