About WildThings NSW


WildThings NSW is a not-for-profit organisation based in Sydney, Australia with a goal to promote, protect and enhance biodiversity in Ku-ring-gai and New South Wales (NSW).

Ku-ring-gai is a local government area in northern Sydney in the state of New South Wales (NSW), Australia and known as “Sydney’s Green Heart”.

WildThings NSW also works very closely with Ku-ring-gai Council which actively promotes a culture of protecting and improving biodiversity.

WildThings NSW links in with many like-minded organisations around the world to protect and improve our biodiversity including the support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular, SDGs 13, 14 and 15.

Biodiversity includes all the variety of life that can be found on earth such as fauna and flora (plants and animals) and their habitat, including soil, seedbanks and water as well as the communities that they form.

The 2014 Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Biodiversity Book describes five core and interacting values that humans place on biodiversity. These are ecological life support, economic, recreation, cultural and scientific.

Any loss or deterioration in the condition of biodiversity can compromise all these values and affect human wellbeing.

During the past six years, WildThings NSW has implemented a number of very successful projects including introducing over 100 tree hollows into gardens of residents and schools, establishing 13 small bird habitat sites as demonstrators for residents to emulate and holding workshops on insect hotels besides forums and workshops amongst other activities.
