Bushfire Recovery - Environment
It is about making small changes to your backyard to improve habitat values and to encourage native birds, moths, butterflies, insects, frogs and lizards to visit or live in your garden. Creating a wildlife refuge in your backyard will increase the likelihood of a native animal’s survival and movement through a landscape.
Tips can be provided on how you manage pets, how you think about and plan your garden design and through the installation of bird baths, native grasses, shrubs and trees and other features such as rocky gardens, nest boxes in trees, or ponds that will encourage and protect native animals.
You can be as creative as you like!
