Wildlife & permaculture haven

Help me create a sustainable haven for native Australian fauna.

This previously cleared 2.7ha site, located in prime koala habitat, now only contains thin and low value feeding trees and shrub which have not been managed properly.

I'm in the process of purchasing the land and will need some financial assistance to transform it into a safe haven for native fauna.

Once the land has been purchased and the necessary assessments are done, the plan is to plant high value feeding trees for several native species such as koalas, possums, different bird species, bats as well as adding nesting boxes and permanent water stations fed by bore water (which will require testing & possibly filtration if the quality of the water is low) for wallabies, goanas, frogs, snakes and all the other critters that will make the place their home.

The loan I can get from the bank will be sufficient for myself to establish a small sustainable and off grid permaculture farm but additional financial assistance will be needed to transform and regenerate the land for the native animals.

Once the regeneration process is underway, I will open up the land for visitors to educate people and show that humans and animals can perfectly live together whilst creating and managing the critically important habitat Australian fauna need to survive and thrive.

We need to create more 'wild space' for native animals, and treasure them and the delicate ecological balance our planet relies on.
