Helmeted Honeyeater habitat planting at Yellingbo

By | Joeys, News | No Comments

Today 5th Brunswick Cubs & Joey Scouts visited the habitat of Victoria’s bird emblem, the Helmeted Honeyeater. They took part in a revegetation program  planting a full suite of plants to restore a Manna Gum forest community essential for Helmeted Honeyeater populations.  Yellingbo State Nature Conservation Reserve is managed by the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater and we thank them for hosting us.

They  managed to get 650 habitat plants in the ground in under an hour! Speedplanting recordholders for Yellingbo!

This planting was made possible through the support of the Judith Eardley Save Wildlife Association & PPWCMA Yarra Wildlife Grant.
