There are lots of ways you can help our wildlife on your own property. Here are just a few ideas.......    

  • Make water available for wildlife during the hot summer days. Ensure that you place a stick against the inside edge of the bowl or bucket of water that you leave out, as often small animals will fall into the water while having a drink and drown because they can't get out
  • Plant wildlife friendly plants. Your local nursery will be able to give you information on what types of plants would be suitable to attract wildlife
  • Make fences wildlife friendly. Fencing commonly causes serious injury to kangaroos in particular. Click here for more information about wildlife friendly fencing for the Macedon Ranges
  • Build and erect possum boxes
  • Create safe wildlife corridors on your property
  • Keep dogs under control and NEVER allow them to chase wildlife or roam in wildlife areas unsupervised
