Warradale Primary School helps build new habitat for wildlife
In June 2018 team members of the Oaklands Crossing project visited Warradale Primary School to run interactive information sessions and nesting box construction workshops with over 100 students from years 3 to 7. James from fauNature – a specialist in local vegetation and wildlife habitats – conducted a presentation and interactive discussion about the native flora and fauna found in the Adelaide region and Oaklands Park area as well as their homes and habitats. Workshops focused on the Oaklands Crossing project and the importance of relocating local wildlife and attracting wildlife to the Oaklands Park area. Over the week, James, together with Oaklands Crossing team members Kellie, Tim, Andrew and Chris worked with students to help students build and decorate a total of 25 wildlife nesting boxes.
The Community Wildlife Program is a Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) initiative that aims to involve local communities in helping to offset the loss of habitat caused by necessary vegetation removals.
