There was a translocation of ~30 Eastern Bristlebirds onto Defence land
on the Beecroft Peninsula at Jervis Bay a few years ago.  I haven't
seen anything announced about how they are faring.  Reestablishing a
suitable fire regime might be difficult in of the locations Bristlebirds
formerly occurred.
