HELP WANTED would be the apt and unabashed; straight-up way to tell you that you're wanted, to help the Eastern Barred Bandicoot bounce back from the brink of extinction! They're a small, nocturnal marsupial with distinct bars on their rump as their name suggests. Solitary animals, they have a short gestation period with young born just after 12 days of pregnancy.

Conservation Volunteers Australia (Melbourne) are hosting this free event on Sunday 30 June 2019 from 9am to 12pm; however you need to BOOK NOW to attend. Transport can be organised from the Melbourne office at 8.30am (please call 03 9326 8250 or email melbourne@cva.org.au) or meet on site at Woodlands Historic Park Somerton Rd, Greenvale, at 9am.


Enjoy a morning of fun and education over the 3 hours of this event, learning about your critically endangered neighbour, the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. You and your family and friends are welcome to a morning full of fun activities such as colouring in bandicoots for the kids, bait rolling and monitoring camera traps.

With the support of Melbourne Airport, a 300 hectare protected and predator-proof habitat located on Melbourne Airport's back doorstep has been established for this critically endangered species in Victoria. Volunteers and community members have worked tirelessly during the past four years to repair, install and maintain a predator-proof fence at Woodlands Historic Park. From 47 lucky critters released in 2012, the Park now has over 120 roaming safe.


Conservation Volunteers Australia (Melbourne) hold events throughout the year, and if you'd like to join this proud group of eco-warriors you can help with the following upcoming events this year (2019) which are all before the current event - Family Day at Woodlands Historic Park.

17-21 and 24-28 Jun AND 1-5 and 8-12 and 15-19 Jul - Tree Planting in Bendigo

Meet likeminded generous souls who work behind the scenes tirelessly like local heroes, to keep Australia beautiful.
