Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999) Can people make a difference to this bird's long-term survival? We believe anyone can.

Helmeted Honeyeater Christmas Campaign

Lost for ideas for that hard to buy for person in your life? ZoosVictoria have developed a HeHo Christmas card to plant seeds of hope for Helmeted Honeyeaters! The purchase of 1 HeHo Christmas card will restore 1 square metre of habitat for the Helmeted Honeyeater and give a gift of hope for a future filled with wildlife and wild places.

Through the HeHo Christmas card campaign we hope to raise awareness about the plight of the Helmeted Honeyeater, provide a convenient method to contribute to the conservation of the species and raise enough money to restore two revegetation plots within Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve. 100% of the funds raised go directly to this project.

Cards are $15.00 each. To purchase, please contact Margaret Harwood at Melbourne Zoo on 03 9285 9462 or Andrea Burgess at Healesville Sanctuary on 03 5957 2850.
