In one of the more interesting environmental project of recent times, Wyong Shire hosted a Community Wildlife Survey, as part of a wider Central Coast project.

Undertaken by Wyong and neighbouring Gosford councils and the National Parks and Wildlife Service, the survey gathered information on the spread of native and introduced animals . It proved a big hit with residents.

The most commonly recorded wildlife were laughing kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets, galahs, blue-tongued lizards, eastern rosellas, noisy minahs, sulphur crested cockatoos, brush-tailed possums, willie wagtails and rabbits.

The results and feedback will help shape Council’s future policies on wildlife management, particularly in relation to rare and threatened species and the preservation of bushland corridors. Thank you to everyone who took part.
