In a newly published book
by the Friends called “A Reserve for a Bird”, the earlier years of the campaign
to save the Helmeted Honeyeater are captured via newsletter snippets that chronicle some of the work of the
Helmeted Honeyeater Survey, later known as Survey Cassidix. This survey ran
from 1952 to 1962 and was succeeded by further survey work by the Victorian
Ornithological Research Group between 1962 and 1967. Ultimately this led to
departmental and government action, captured in the book through a series of
letters and media releases. purchased here
