Nearly half of Australia’s threatened wildlife can be found in our cities. This makes urban areas vital refuges for our native animals. You can support our local wildlife by creating a wildlife-friendly garden:
Plant native species
Build an insect hotel
Keep your cats indoors
Provide nest boxes in trees for wildlife
Provide water during hot summer days
Provide rocks and logs for lizards
