Artist Statement

The Black-eared Miner (Manorina melanotis) is an endangered honeyeater endemic to mallee woodland in Southeast Australia. They are co-operative breeders, living in colonies during the breeding season, and dispersing into the bush during non-breeding periods. The biggest threat to them is habitat loss. In 2016 The South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board was awarded a 20 Million Trees project grant to help restore one area, which should benefit Black-eared Miners and other Mallee species.
