Our Coast

Pristine Bushlands, fantastic waterways, unique wildlife and a great climate, just some of the reasons we all want to protect what we haveā€¦

Our Wildlife

greengolden bell frog litoria aureaOur waterways and bushland contain many wonderful native species. There are tiny seahorses in our lakes, platypus in our streams and koalas, southern brown bandicoot, and spotted-tailed quoll in our bushland. Not to mention to the large variety of birds and fish in and around the lakes and ocean.

Many of them also share our urban areas, such as blue tongue lizard behind the back shed or a kookaburra on the telephone pole out front. These animals are what make our home on the Central Coast and Lake Macquarie so special.

The protection of habitat is possibly the best thing we can do for our native species and the Community Environment Network has projects aimed at conserving natural areas and creating wildlife corridors.

Projects include:

lfw-logo-240Land for Wildlife

The Land for Wildlife (LFW) program is a voluntary property registration scheme for landowners who wish to manage areas for biodiversity and wildlife habitat. LFW encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation along with other land management objectives. The program is free for landholders to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.

Join the growing number of landholders that are looking after their land as habitat.

Any landholder can join Habitat for Wildlife, urban, rural, farm or lifestyle block. Show you care about our wildlife by joining and providing some wildlife habitat on your land.

Urban areas can be very important habitats and by connecting isolated pockets of habitat wildlife corridors are formed. These are vital connections for many species of birds and animals, enabling them to move from one area to another. Click here for more information and to SIGN UP online
