Wildlife and Nest Boxes
Melbourne has an incredible variety of native plants and animals living within our suburbs and Bay. The EcoCentre is passionate about sharing the wonders of this urban wildlife with everyone through:
- School and ELC incursions and excursions
- Community Walks
- Community festivals and events
- Presentations and workshops
- Keynote speaking
Wildlife within Melbourne (and other urban ares) especially arboreal (tree-dependant) and noctural (active during the night) species face numerous pressures from urbanisation.
The EcoCentre has a long running urban habitat and nest box program that provide much needed homes (habitat) for the following species:
- Eastern Rosella
- Microbats (especially Gould's Wattled Bat)
- Wood Duck
The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
