Mapie drinking from a bird bath on a very hot day

Here are some ideas for you to consider to help out our native wildlife during extremely hot days, especially in periods of drought.

A simple way to help out our local wildlife is to put a shallow tub of water out for birds and other wildlife to drink from.

Use your garden hose to mist spray trees and shrubs.

Consider providing protection, such as screening, to protect drinking animals from predators such as birds of prey.

For larger tubs, place a stick or rock inside to assist the animal to climb out.

Provide tubs at different sizes to suit different needs.

Change water daily to help prevent the spread of diseases.

Keep domestic animals away.
