Welcome to Your February Newsletter.
Summer is shining on us in all its glory with the heat testing even the hardy wildlife. It’s nice to see people putting out water stations for the wildlife, just to help give them a little respite from the dehydrating effects of the drought. Small containers of water attached to a tree will help the birds and koalas, while shallow wide containers on the ground can assist the snakes, kangaroos and possums etc.
Don’t get too close to them though – maintain a healthy respect for their privacy and that way no-one will be hurt. While you are at it, make sure you have plenty of water bowls available inside and out for your parched pets, and ensure there are shady spots where they can retire to in the heat of the day.
