Wildlife. Many wildlife species become victims of entanglement in monofilament bird exclusion netting and barbed wire fences. TMNHA is supporting the wildlife friendly fencing project and a ban on monofilament netting, brochures are available from the VIC (refer websites www.wildlifefriendlyfencing.com, www.epa.qld.gov.au, www.batrescue.org.au). The cold dry conditions are having a devastating effect on wildlife with many weak, starving creatures are coming into care, its certainly an appropriate time to make your garden as wildlife friendly as possible.
