Enjoy a morning (9am - 12pm)of fun and education learning about your critically endangered neighbour the Eastern Barred Bandicoot.   

With the support of Melbourne Airport, Conservation Volunteers Australia has established a 300 hectare protected and predator-proof habitat for the critically endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot, one of Victoria’s most endangered mammals. Located on Melbourne Airport’s back doorstep, community members and volunteers have worked tirelessly during the past four years to repair, install and maintain a predator-proof fence at Woodlands Historic Park. 

With 47 lucky critters released in 2012 the Park now has over 120 roaming safe. 

Conservation Volunteers Australia and Melbourne Airport welcomes you, your family and friends to a morning  full of fun activities such as colouring in bandicoots for children, bait rolling and monitoring camera traps.

With the species currently listed as extinct in the wild, your assistance is essential to the Eastern Barred Bandicoot’s recovery so they can bounce back from the brink of extinction! 

Transport can be organised from the Melbourne office at 8.30am (please call 03 9326 8250 or email melbourne@cva.org.au) or meet us on site at 9am.
