Comments Ku-ring-gai’s wildlife is doing it tough! But local residents can create a habitat stepping stone to help them out. It’s easy! Just by adding a few habitat elements to a backyard or balcony anyone can create a valuable wildlife-friendly stopover. The Australian Research Institute for Environment and Sustainability at Macquarie University has partnered with Ku-ring-gai Municipal Council to develop a fabulous website where residents can discover over 60 beautiful garden elements (such as plants, bird baths and nesting boxes) that can help our local wildlife. 34 food plants 5 water elements 21 shelter elements If residents, schools, body corporates, or community groups pledge online to add any three or more elements to their own property we will send them a colourful “Habitat Stepping Stone” sign for their front fence, local nurseries will give them a 10% discount, they can choose to have their property highlighted on our online map, and they can join our vibrant Facebook community to learn about and share photos and stories about our local wildlife. No computer? No problem! We will post out all the information for free.

One of our four Community Ambassadors would be delighted to give a presentation to your group about this wonderful initiative. Feel free to contact me at any time. (This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.)
