Many native birds, mammals and insects are finding it hard to survive in Syd​ney’s urban environment.  Canterbury-​Bankstown is no exception.

We have a variety of local wildlife including birds, possums, lizards and frogs that call our city home. For our wildlife to survive, they need certain types of food, water and sh​elter.
Large parks and bushland reserves provide some habitat and refuge for native animals, although sometimes these areas can be separated by great distances. By providing the right food, water and shelter in your own backyard or balcony, you can create a habitat st​epping stone between these areas. 
Creating a habitat stepping stone can be as easy a creating a log pile, placing out a bowl of water and planting a shrub.
To make creating a habitat stepping stone easier, Council has teamed up with Macquarie University to provide a website lots of helpful advice.
