Habitat Creation

We were very grateful to receive some storm damaged timber from Yarra Ranges Council earlier in the year, and have been working with our colleagues at Ecology & Restoration Australia to turn this timber into wildlife habitat.

Some of the timber has been utilised to form entrances for carved hollows, suitable for arboreal native species.

These were made using a new tool called the Hollowhog, which can carve a small or large hollow into the wood. Some of the timber will also be used as refuges for terrestrial species, such as lizards, and still more will be made into bee hotels.
