About Backyard Buddies

Backyard Buddies is an education initiative of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.

FNPW is an environmental charity. We are a non-government organisation on a mission to protect Australia’s ecosystems and native species for generations to come.

Backyard Buddies is a national environmental education initiative and community engagement program. Backyard Buddies enjoys the support of many schools, councils, Catchment Management Authorities, and community members across Australia.

We believe in Backyard Buddies because 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.
