It is tricky to support wildlife feeding in East Gippsland when it's a four-hour drive away! But FoE is starting a mutual aid collective to figure out the best ways we can lend a hand to wildlife from the city.
Do you have experience feeding wildlife after bushfires or during drought and simply need access to resources to do so now in East Gippsland? Check out the resources and locations of food hubs on the East Gippsland Landholders page and get in touch with us if you need further information. Email [email protected] and write FEEDING in the subject line.
Nest Boxes for Wildlife
Would you like to help make nest boxes? Do you have skills in tree climbing and installing nest boxes? Send us an email at [email protected] and write NEST BOXES in the subject line to get involved.
If you have the know-how and just want to jump in and make some, you can find downloadable PDFs here for some of the sizes needed!
