Rewilding of Prospect Creek - Homes for Habitat

  • Location: Smithfield NSW
  • Category: Environment & Conservation

Hollows are needed for many species that inhabit our native woodlands. From birds, to gliders, possums and tree frogs, hollows are in short supply in Western Sydney due to the loss of mature trees in the landscape. CVA is building and installing habitat boxes for birds, gliders and microbats. This project and workshop will help you understand the importance of hollows and help you identify some of the key species and types of habitat required by those species in Western Sydney.
