Water for wildlife

Our Wellbeing

With the ongoing dry spells in South Australia, it's important to not only look after ourselves, but lend a helping hand to our native wildlife who may be struggling to locate fresh drinking water.

Here's five quick steps you can take to help our native wildlife stay hydrated and safe:

  1. Fill a shallow container or dish with fresh tap water
  2. Label the container 'Water for wildlife'
  3. Place in a shady area, out of the way from pedestrian traffic - at the base of a tree, up against a building, or under drinking fountains/taps
  4. Refill and clean the container regularly
  5. Place a sturdy stick or rock in the container for smaller animals and lizards to use as a ramp to safely access/exit the water
