WILDLIFE FEEDING

Whether we like it or not, many people living in suburban environments attract wildlife to their backyards by putting out food. Despite a lack of formal policies, most Australian wildlife agencies are openly opposed to the feeding of wildlife in any setting – whether it be a national park or a
suburban backyard. There is still a need however, for scientifi c research/evidence to validate the dangers that may occur to wildlife as a result of feeding.

Numerous surveys have been conducted in recent years on the occurrence of suburban wildlife feeding and found that approximately half of all Australian households partake in some form of wildlife feeding. Some reasons for feeding include compensating for the impact humans have had on the environment and the rewarding feeling that people get from being able to interact closely with a wild animal. The studies also found that many species visit backyard feeding stations.

The most common species to visit these stations in south-east Queensland are magpies, butcherbirds, kookaburras, lorikeets, pigeon species, brushtail and ringtail possums, bandicoots and wallabies (in certain areas). The primary concern for those agencies opposed to wildlife feeding is the
possibility of the animals becoming dependent on human provided foods.

It has not been scientifically proven as yet due to a relatively small amount of research conducted on the topic, but it is thought that dependency may become an issue for juvenile birds (eg. Young magpies, kookaburras and pee wees). Suburban wildlife feeding has also been implicated in the reduction of urban biodiversity due to the attraction of large numbers of aggressive and behaviourally dominant species to feeding stations.

For many Australians, native animal encounters play a significant role in their lives. A great way to naturally encourage wild animals into your home is to create a ‘wildlife friendly’ garden. It can be as simple or as complex as your prepared to make it and you need to consider what sort of animals you would like to attract.

Reptiles prefer rocky crevices and lots of ground shrubs to hide under, so be sure to put lots of rocks, logs and small plants in your garden. If you’re looking to encourage honeyeaters, lorikeets and possums then you need
to plant grevilleas, callistemans, bottlebrushes and lilly pilly trees.

Nest boxes are also a great way to encourage possums into your trees and away from your roof or ceiling! You can even go as far as to create your own backyard rainforest if you live in the right climate. The possibilities are endless! You will soon find that having a beautiful native garden where the animals use their natural foraging behaviour is far more rewarding than having the occasional brave magpie or butcherbird pluck a bit of food from your hand.
