Water4Wildlife is an initative of Greater Sydney Local Land Services, and Greater Sydney Landcare Network to help care for our native fauna – as droughts and fires cripple our landscape.
Water is the best thing you can do for our native animals. Stations placed with fresh water (with landowner permissions), 500m apart and suitable for small animals and large macropods alike will provide our native species with the best chance of survival.
Find all the tips and tricks below, and why feeding our local species won’t help them recover. Tag your watering points with #water4wildlife and #gsln.
Thanks to Peter Ridgeway for being the driving force behind this fantastic community initiative.
