Backyard Habitat for Wildlife

The Backyard Habitat for Wildlife program supports suburban landholders who provide native habitat in their backyard.

In cities and suburban areas, backyard habitat provides an important sanctuary for native animals, particularly when habitat in surrounding areas is damaged or lost. Pockets of habitat provide important refuges for wildlife.

Neighbours, each with backyard habitat, provide important corridors that enable wildlife to move through the landscape to find niches providing shelter, food and mates.


Participants in the program receive:

  • factsheets and other information
  • a great sign for your letterbox or gate
  • opportunities to network with other people who love native animals
  • invitations to free workshops
  • the opportunity to share pictures of your favourite wildlife with other members


Further information is available by contacting Council’s Project Officer – Biodiversity, Michael Corke, on (02) 6670 2592 or email mcorke@tweed.nsw.gov.au

    Possum family

    by Charlotte Higgins, almost 4 years ago

    Found these two rascals in my backyard, a Mum and baby.

    I may need to build them a home in the new year :)
