Fighting extinction is just common cents

Victoria's grasslands are one of Australia's most threatened ecosystems with less than 0.1% of the habitat remaining. Sadly these shrinking grasslands are also home to some of Victoria's most unique animals such as the Eastern Barred Bandicoot.

A new born Eastern Barred Bandicoot is almost the same size as a 5 cent coin or a $2 coin.

1. The Common Cents Silver Challenge

Collecting 300 five cent coins is all it takes to support Zoos Victoria's Eastern Barred Bandicoot threatened species program.

Mark your coins off on the Common Cents posters as you collect them.

On completion of the challenge you will receive:

  • a certificate of appreciation
  • a tax deductible receipt.

2. The Common Cents Gold Challenge

Collecting 90 two dollar coins is all it takes to adopt an Eastern Barred Bandicoot for a year.

Mark your coins off on the Common Cents posters as you collect them.

On completion of the challenge you will receive:

  • an Eastern Barred Bandicoot Animal Adoption Pack
  • a certificate of appreciation
  • a tax deductible receipt.

Upon completing the challenge please send a cheque or money order clearly marked with your name, school and address to:

Zoos Victoria Foundation
Common Cents Gold Challenge
PO Box 74 Parkville
Victoria 3052
