Since Europeans first settled on the Bathurst plains in 1815, there have been drastic changes to our local environment. The grasslands and grassy woodlands were favoured for agriculture, and hence, the wildlife that existed there was the first to be displaced. …..

Despite these changes, Koalas, Platypuses, turtles, dragons, quolls, owls, falcons,treecreepers, pardalotes, pobblebonks, orb weavers and hundreds more local wildlife species still exist in the Bathurst Region:Through the enhancement of the human environment – our homes – we can greatly improve the environment for local fauna. By creating Backyards for Wildlife, each resident can take simple steps to reduce the pressures on Bathurst Region wildlife, and ensure that those animals that share our lives are assured a future.
