Wildlife and Your Pets Workshop

Meet some native lizards, frogs and birds and maybe even a bandicoot while you learn about how you and your pets can live in harmony with local wildlife. 

Division 12 Councillor Adrian Raedel said Moreton Bay Regional Council had organised the free Wildlife and Your Pets Workshop at Burpengary’s CREEC environment centre from 9am to 11.30am on Saturday, November 5. 

“This is the first time we’ve held this workshop, which is suitable for residents aged 12 and up and will combine an animal show by Geckoes Wildlife with practical advice about living with native birds, reptiles, frogs and mammals,” Cr Raedel said. 

“We live in a region that has a wide diversity of wildlife and this workshop is aimed at giving participants knowledge that will help them enjoy and coexist with native species found in their neighbourhoods. 

“You’ll be able to learn about the kinds of native animals you can keep as pets and what Queensland Government laws you’ll need to follow. 

“There will be important information on what you can do to help protect both your pets and your environment and how to make your home a wildlife safe haven.” 

Council will also provide information on building suitable cat enclosures so that cat owners can give their pets some outdoor time without having to be concerned about them catching and killing wildlife. 

To book your workshop place, please phone council on 5433 2122 during office hours.
