Plant a tree and the Wildworld will say thankyou

Lots of animals need trees, so planting native trees, and helping them to grow big and strong, is one of the best ways you can Help the Wildworld. Other plants provide food and shelter to animals too, so it doesn’t have to be a tree. You could also plant a shrub, herb, sedge or waterplant, and the Wildworld will be grateful!

How do you find out which plants to plant in your area? If you’re in Brisbane, check out these
Lists of local native plants for Brisbane & free native plants for Brisbane residents . Many other places have guides to local native plants, so do some searching to find out the best native plants to help your local patch of Wildworld.

These two plant nurseries provide a wonderful range of local native plants for Brisbane:
Paten Park Native Nursery
Kumbartcho Native Nursery

You can also
join a Habitat Brisbane group to help look after your local patch of bush

And here’s a free colour-in cartoon for you to save and print:

Sea creatures love reusable bottles

Sea creatures really don’t like the plastic waste that ends up in their home. You can help by saying ‘no’ to bottled water, and drinking tap water from a reusable bottle instead.

Keep your cat indoors

posted in: Cartoon, Help the Wildworld | 0

I love cats. But I love birds too. Unfortunately, many pet cats like to kill birds. Cat bells don’t always work. The solution? Keep your cat indoors, and construct an outdoor play pen that they can’t escape from. This will also protect your cat from neighborhood bullies and from being squashed by cars.

And the Wildworld will thank you for it!
