MENS SHED BUILDING HOMES FOR NATIVE WILDLIFE
The volunteers at the Kyogle Men’s Shed are helping to protect our native wildlife by making nest boxes for some of our native species.
Australia has the greatest percentage of hollow nesting animals than any other continent with 20% of native animals relying on hollows for survival. Naturally occurring hollows are becoming sparse leaving much of our wildlife homeless. Nest boxes can play a vital role in species conservation in areas where tree hollows are scarce.
The Men’s Shed is producing great quality boxes for a range of species including microbats, Eastern Rosellas, and Ring-Tailed Possums.
If you are interested in installing a nest box or finding out more please drop into Northern Landcare Support Services at 40 Summerland Way Kyogle o
