There are two geographically discrete populations of Eastern Bristlebird in Australia. The northern population of Eastern Bristlebird is endangered with only an estimated 30-50 individuals left in the wild. Their most significant decline may be attributed to changes to their environment since European settlement. Altered fire regimes, land clearing for farms and weeds are but some of the threats continuing to face this little Aussie Battler.
The conservation team at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary are working hard in an effort to breed and release this endangered bird back into the wild. Help achieve this by donating now.
