Attracting wildlife

Kereru/wood pigeons are important seed dispersers for New Zealand plants.

There are many ways to attract wildlife to your garden or to a restoration project. There are also numerous sources of information to help you do this (see below). Note that attracting wildlife may not always be wise especially if it is vulnerable to animal pests. For example, attracting native birds to your garden is not a good thing to do if you, or your neighbours, own a cat or if the wildlife has to cross a busy road to get to your garden.
