Description

Learn how to create wildlife habitat in your very own backyard.


In this masterclass, wildlife scientist and consultant Wouter van Dongen will teach you how to identify what wildlife may visit your garden as well as the practical steps you can take to attract these species.

Wouter will cover everything from creating the correct vegetation structure to attracting birds, insects, frogs, lizards and much more! Whether you own a large forest block, or a small balcony in the suburbs, anyone can contribute to improving the habitat for local wildlife and aiding in their conservation.
