Backyard Buddies is a free education initiative run by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.
It gives you simple tips to transform your backyard into a safe and inviting habitat haven.
Backyard Buddies are the native plants and animals that share our urban areas, waterways, backyards and parks. Backyard Buddies are also the people who value native wildlife and want to protect it. So you can be a backyard buddy.
Connect your Backyard, create Green Corridors and help us support the Big Backyard – National Parks across Australia Your backyard, school yard, or local park is your very own bit of Australian wilderness, and it’s teeming with wildlife – even if you can’t see them all the time. Your backyard is a small part of our Big Backyard and Green Corridors that link our many National Parks, giving safe passage and a safe haven for animals whose habits and habitats don’t recognise man-made boundaries.
You can explore, create and help your own backyard buddies, to help them survive and to thrive into the future.
