Students recycle bags for Burramys
Nunawading Christian School recently visited Healesville Sanctuary and participated in our Bags for Burramys program.
Burramys (Mountain Pygmy Possums) are under threat from climate change as they rely on snow cover to hibernate during the winter months.
The students collected plastics coded 2, 4 and 5 (including plastic bags!) back at school and bought them into the Sanctuary for our Bags for Burramys collection bin. These plastics will eventually be taken to Replas to form a recycled plastic seat for our Sustainability Garden.
It is great to see kids take action for climate change!
Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.
Zoos Victoria offers opportunities for volunteers. Use your skills and experience to help us fight extinction!
The small Mountain Pygmy-Possum, is endangered due to loss of habitat in Alpine regions of Victoria and NSW. Luckily, we have a program for their recovery. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the Mountain Pygmy Possum.
Your donation helps us fight extinction and care for our animals.
