We often think of using balloons when we mark a special occasion. But if used outdoors, balloons and their ribbons and clips can end up in waterways and oceans, harming birds and other aquatic animals through ingestion and entanglement.
Balloons can be fun. But they don’t belong outside. Merri Creek Management Committee has signed on as an official suppporter of Zoos Victoria's When Balloon's Fly, Seabirds Die campaign. We won't use balloons at any events and we're encouraging others to do the same. You can take the pledge at the Zoos Victoria website.
