      Healesville Sanctuary, or the Sir Colin MacKenzie Fauna Park, is a zoo at Healesville in only keeps animals that come from has a history of breeding Australian animals. In it became the first zoo to breed a only other zoo to have bred a platypus is Sydney's Taronga also helps by breeding the endangered Helmeted honeyeater.   The sub-species diverged ab years ago and interbred in the wild until the helmeted honeyeater population dropped so low that it became isolated from its nearest relatives.

      For the critically endangered Helmeted Honeyeater (Lichenostomus melanops cassidix) of central southern Victoria, Australia, climate also plays a role in the timing and success of breeding. During the period to , the timing of laying became earlier and there was a possible reduction in the mean number of eggs laid per breeding season. Primary school and early childhood teachers are invited to join Birdlife Australia and the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater to learn more about our beautiful faunal emblem - the Helmeted Honeyeater. The workshop will be held at Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve. Thursday 30 May, pm.
