Gardens for Wildlife

​​​​​​​Your garden could provide a safe haven for wildlife with food, shelter, look-out spots, nesting sites and safe areas to raise young. No matter how small your garden - be it plant containers, or a courtyard, roof top garden, deck or larger space - we can all contribute to the survival of wildlife by providing suitable places (habitat) for birds, insects, frogs, lizards and other animals.

Learn more about our native animals and how to provide wildlife-friendly spaces and environment-friendly practices in your garden.​
