HFW What is it?

Urban and suburban areas already contain very important habitats for wildlife, but they are often in isolated patches. We can form wildlife corridors by connecting isolated pockets of habitat. These vital connections for many species of animals (including birds) enable them to move from one area to another.

Habitat for Wildlife offers suburban residents information and support to conserve and improve habitats for wildlife in their own backyards. This project brings neighbours together to help create the vital connections beyond their backyards to include local reserves and parks to better support the local wildlife.

There are no meetings to attend, but plenty of opportunities to meet with like-minded folk for workshops, seminars and social events.

To get started you can simply provide some water for local wildlife and work towards planting your whole patch with suitable native plants.

Put up your sign and tell your friends and neighbours.
