Members are our life blood
The Committee of the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater greatly values your
membership, as without your commitment and contribution we could not continue
the essential work that our members and volunteers do to improve habitat for the
Helmeted Honeyeater and wildlife generally. Thank you for your wonderful support
and continued commitment to efforts to rescue the critically endangered Helmeted
Honeyeater from the brink.
We aim to keep our membership affordable for everyone at $10 for concession holders/students, $15 for individuals and $30 for families.
Get involved in shaping the future of the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater. By becoming a member you can contribute to our direction, get involved in our activities and you can even stand for positions on the committee.
Birds are recognised as an indicator of the health of the environment so as a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater member you help the environment as a whole.
If you can afford more than our membership fee, consider donating. Each year, a special project is nominated by the committee to which additional donations are allocated. See here for details of past and current projects that have only been possible through donations.
