The Northern Eastern Bristlebird Dasyornis brachypterus monoides, is one of the most critically endangered populations with less than 50 individuals estimated to remain in the wild. This population is found only in south-eastern Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales and faces extinction in the wild from threatening processes such as habitat loss, grazing and predation. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in conjunction with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) manages the captive breeding program for this threatened species. This captive program serves as an insurance population to increase Bristlebird numbers through captive breeding and collection of eggs and/or chicks from the wild to form additional founders for breeding. This breeding season has proven successful with 4 chicks being produced. These chicks were raised by one of Currumbin’s dedicated breeding pairs of Bristlebirds. This pair not only successfully raised their own offspring they were able to raise the offspring of an unrepresented pair of Bristlebirds with very important genetics. The addition of these birds into the captive breeding population not only adds to the captive breeding population it also injects much needed new bloodlines to ensure the genetic health and continuation of captive breeding. The 4 delightful chicks have flourished and now are learning the skills required to become potential breeders. Two of the offspring were males and one is a female and the fourth is yet to be determined. We hope to have more positive updates on the captive breeding of this critically endangered species.
