Signboard just before the turn to Crown Station Road
Signboards have been put up in Capertee Valley to showcase some conservation efforts currently underway to create more suitable habitat for Regent Honeyeater. The relatively shorter trees behind the signboard suggest that the trees were planted not many years ago. Looks like conservation project especially like this one are more like a long term commitment.
IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO CHOP DOWN A PATCH OF FOREST BUT IT TAKES SO MANY YEARS TO BRING BACK THE LOST HABITAT.
One benefit of putting up signboards will at least create awareness to the public of the importance of this tree planting project. Using Regent Honeyeater as a flagship icon is definitely more effective than not using any eye catching animal at all, as not many people besides seasoned birdwatchers have a chance to see this beautiful bird.
