There are other "good" stories relating to captive breeding of endangered 
species, you may like to contact David Geering to get the details of the 
breeding at Taronga Zoo, Sydney and release of the Regent Honeyeaters under the 
Regent Honeyeater recovery Plan. The recovery of the Red-fronted Parrot on 
Norfolk Island is another example of succesful captive breeding.

Hi All,

I am currently writing an assignment dealing with captive avian management.

There is some good to be had in this eg for the Lord Howe Island Woodhen but 
also some bad. The bad though might not be written up so enthusiastically as 
the good! Can any one shed light on a disaster that I heard rumour of some 
years ago involving a well known institution and ?Helmeted Honeyeater and a 
vitamin overdose?

Much gratitude if you can help.

Bob Berry.
