Helmeted Honeyeater Volunteer Opportunities, VIC (ongoing)
The Helmeted Honeyeater is critically endangered. Less than 200 individuals are believed to remain at Victoria's Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve.
Working alongside the Helmeted Honeyeater Recovery Team at Yellingo, volunteers play an important role in the effort to develop crucial habitats, and to grow the Honeyeater's population. You can lend a hand with activities at Yellingbo such as:
Supplementary feeding of birds. Email Sue Tardif: email@example.com
Plant nursery days. These take place on Tuesday and Thursday of each week, plus the first Saturday of each month from April-December. Contact Michelle Faram of Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater: (03) 5964 8341
Revegetation days. These often take place on the second Sunday of the month. Contact Richard Case of Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater: (03) 9720 4062
Revegetation days (for larger groups). Community/school/corporate groups can book a planting day, and tertiary students are invited for work experience - contact Cecilia Imre of Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater on (03) 5964 8341 or firstname.lastname@example.org
