Restoration of reeded shallow wetland zones suited to Bitterns, Egrets, Herons, Reed Warblers and Crakes is of paramount importance and all will benefit from restored natural habitat. 20% of birds as well as terrestrial mammals and microbats use hollows so it's important we keep our old growth trees and assist with nesting boxes if required.
As a Key Biodiversity Area or KBA, it is important that regular monitoring takes place. Devilbend Foundation community plays an active role in bird population monitoring and keeping track of bird trends. Every month bird numbers are accurately recorded. Population health is vital for a healthy future.
