Our wildlife is facing an unprecedented crisis. Rapid human population growth and our destructive activities have stripped species of their habitats and food sources.
There are many small things you can do to help out wildlife in need.
For example, if you have access to a garden, plant some native wildflowers for wild bees and other pollinators that are declining precipitously. Mow your lawn less often, avoid using pesticides and leave gaps in your garden fence or wall for hedgehogs to move through.
If you’d like to do more, why not volunteer for a local conservation group or wildlife rehabilitation centre?
