Wild Animal Food
All living things need to eat to survive, so food sources are a critical component of wildlife habitat. Native plants form the foundation of the food chain in the natural world. Therefore, we should do the same in our wildlife-friendly gardens or landscapes. Plants provide food to wildlife in a wide variety of ways. From berries to nuts to nectar and even the insects they support that feed other animals.
Our wild animal food should supplement natural food sources of wild animals. To be of particular help for survival in winter months. Remember not to leave out large quantities of food each evening to prevent your wildlife guests becoming dependant on handouts. They are wild and need to stay so for the best chance of survival.
