Backyard biodiversity - strong voices to empower active choices

Backyard explorer

Backyard explorer

This project aims to foster mutual ownership of backyard biodiversity issues and actions by uniquely working in partnership with the community to identify shared priorities. These will incorporate:

  • a diverse range of biodiversity values, interests and needs
  • a variety of habitats and actions suited to different backyard contexts
  • a tangible starting point for developing a future biodiversity assessment tool for gardens
  • flagging any issues or ideas that require future follow-up.

Powerfully, this will form a basis for shared action that is realistically tailored to what can actually be achieved, and designed to maximise community engagement and uptake for best benefit to biodiversity.
