The remains of helium balloons are commonly found on Australia’s beaches, posing an unnecessary and avoidable risk to wildlife. Check out the Facts About Balloons to learn more. Individuals around the country are doing their bit to fight this inappropriate fashion. You can help us prevent balloon releases.
Often, integrating a balloon release in a promotional event or private celebration happens not from a lack of care, but from a lack of awareness. If you hear that a business or private group is planning a balloon release or if you found a balloon with promotional print you can take action by sending the person in charge a letter bringing the issue to their attention. Check out our Balloon Release Action Guide for instructions and letter templates.
To prevent planned balloon releases invite others to send letters of concern too and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for professional support.
