Build Habitats for Native Animals
Do you enjoy seeing native animals around your place?
The easiest thing you can do to encourage them is to provide them with a safe home in your garden with lots of food available in the form of native plants.
You can build nestboxes for many different species, establish a frog or fish pond, plant locally native species, or learn how to maintain your garden without chemicals.
Wildlife Carer & Rescue Groups Around Australia
If you see an injured native animal around your area, you can do something very simple to help out. Consult our Wildlife Carer and Animal Rescue Group list and get in contact with your local group, or call a local vet.
Many injured animals can be rehabilitated and released into the wild if carer groups are alerted early enough to make a difference.

Possums in your Roof!
Ringtail and Brushtail Possums love to sleep outdoors in tree hollows, but competition for these are stiff. It takes up to one hundred years or more for hollows to form in Eucalypt trees, and if these trees are removed, it's a long time before suitable hollows replace the ones that are gone.
Possums are one of the most commonly seen native species in urban areas, and when they can't find good places to sleep outdoors, they move into our rooves!
