Ways To Keep Wildlife Safe ...
- Keep native vegetation on your block. They are food, shelter and nesting sites for wildlife, hollows in trees are particularly important.
- Plant native trees and shrubs to form wildlife corridors to link up with bushland and parks.
- Do not use, or try to restrict the use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and creosote in your garden, wildlife can be affected or poisoned by these chemicals.
- Observe wildlife from a distance, animals can become distressed and injure themselves.
- Drive slowly and carefully at night, many of our native animals are nocturnal.
- Carry a towel, blanket, sack or box in your car, in case you encounter injured wildlife on the road.Call a wildlife carer as soon as possible.
- Teach your children to love and appreciate all wildlife and the environment.
- Be a responsible pet owner, dogs and cats cause injury and death in many of our wildlife species.
- If you have a pool, attach a rope to a post or tree by the side of the pool and place the end in the water to help animals climb out.
