Learn how to promote and protect wildlife in your own backyard.  You will be helping to preserve the biodiversity of our urban wildlife.

Learn about two projects which focus on the use of “Artificial” hollows and “Natural” hollows for native wildlife that is facing huge habitat loss caused by such things as the removal of trees from properties, including old growth trees, clearing of bushland for development, etc. To date, more than 80 residents of the Ku-ring-gai Council area have obtained one of the “Natural” hollows for their gardens.
