Interested in being a backyard buddy?
Being a backyard buddy doesn't involve any formal commitment. Just do what's right for you, your backyard, and your neighbourhood. You'll have the satisfaction of:
- getting to know your local native plants and animals
- giving plants and animals the natural conditions they need - not only to survive, but to prosper
- making your local environment a more beautiful and enjoyable place
- helping make sure that our native animals and plants are there for our children to enjoy.
Backyard buddies are supported by the NPWS, together with local councils and other interested groups. So you can always get helpful advice and suggestions if you need them.
