Sponsoring an animal habitat within Centennial Parklands is a great way to learn about how to protect animals and their habitat.
For just $5 a month, or $60 a year (tax deductible) you can sponsor the habitat of one of the animals that have made Centennial Parklands their home:
- Sydney Basin Turtle
- Brushtailed Possum
- Black Swan
- Fairy Wren
- Grey-headed Flying Fox
- Tawny Frogmouth
By sponsoring an animal habitat you are supporting the work of the Foundation to protect the animals in the Parklands. This includes:
- protecting and preserving threatened species such as Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub
- improving pond water quality for birds, fish, turtles and frogs, in the largest freshwater wetland system in metropolitan Sydney
- managing pest species such as European carp and introducing native Australian bass into the pond system
- planting wetland plants to provide places for feeding, resting, hiding and raising young
- nurturing trees and shrubs to provide hollows for roosting and nesting; open canopies for insectivorous bats; twiggy growth favoured by some spiders; a litter layer where invertebrates can thrive; bark of many textures as insect habitat; flowers which attract butterflies; and fruits as food for birds and flying foxes
- researching the lives of the Parklands’ inhabitants, such as the Australian White Ibis population
Once you have selected your animal you will receive:
- A fact sheet about your chosen animal
- An animal habitat sponsorship certificate
- A complimentary Centennial Parklands activity, such as a Spotlight Prowl or Birdwatcher’s Breakfast
