What Can You Do For Wildlife In Your Area?

By Richard Fallon

It’s no secret that the way that humans are treating this planet is causing many animals to become extinct. It is therefore all of our duties to do our bit to save our own corner of this planet.

This should start close to home.

If you live in an urban area, you may not think about wildlife too much. After all, there probably doesn’t appear to be too much of it on show. But there are animals that you may not realize are there. You’ll no doubt have plenty of birds in the area, you may even have foxes, hedgehogs, or squirrels, you may even have a baby owl or two. But just because you don’t ever see these animals, it doesn’t mean that they are not there. But just because they are there, it doesn’t mean that they are not affected by human existence and the way in which we live.

In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the ways that you can help the wildlife in your area.

Clean Up Any Litter

The first thing that you should do to protect the wildlife in your area is to clean up any waste that you may find lying around. While litter is an eyesore, it can also be very harmful to local wildlife who may swallow it or get trapped by it.

If you see any litter, even if it’s not yours, you should pick it up.

Plant Native Plants

If you want to attract local wildlife to your garden, you should plant native plants. This will give shelter for any animals that may happen to use your garden while attracting bees and butterflies to help to pollinate your plants.

Slow Down When Driving

When you are driving, particularly at night, you should slow down to avoid any kind of collision with any animals that may be crossing the road. Keep your eyes open for any animals whose habitats may have been divided up by the building of a road.

Use Window Decorations

Using window decorations is a great way of preventing birds from flying directly into your window. Some birds may not see that you have glass, meaning the bird will fly straight into the window.

Feed The Birds

Use a bird table and some birdseed to feed the birds. If you regularly put bird food out in your garden, you’ll find that you get many different types of birds coming back and visiting your feed table on a regular basis.

Keep Fresh Water For The Birds

In addition to feeding the birds, you may want to also keep some fresh water out for the birds too. You may also want to put bowls of fresh water down for other thirsty animals that may come to visit your garden.

Make A Pond

Dig a pond in your garden. Keep the edges of your pond nice and shallow This will help you to attract newts and frogs into your pond.
