Nesting in New Farm
If you look up into the trees in New Farm Park, you might find some wildlife at home in the park’s nest boxes.
31 nest boxes were installed by Brisbane City Council in August this year to ensure that local wildlife have the habitat they need to thrive.
Some of the creatures the New Farm Park nest boxes are expected to attract include the small parrot, rosella, dollarbird and striated pardalote.
Councillor for Central Ward Vicki Howard said: “Australia has the most hollow-dependent wildlife in the world, and our nest box program is one way we’re supporting sugar gliders, microbats, birds and all the other wildlife in need of shelter.
“The Schrinner Council is committed to delivering a clean, green, sustainable Brisbane, and nest boxes are just one way we’re making this happen,” she said.
