The City of Randwick is fortunate that more than 200 species of terrestrial mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs are still represented in, or regularly visit, our City.
Native Havens project
Our Bushland Management Team is linking and protecting native flora and fauna on public and private land through Randwick Council's Native Havens program.
Creating native fauna habitats
This education- and incentive-based approach facilitates and promotes the use of native flora in suburban backyards and non-public areas such as schools as a means of attracting, retaining, supporting and creating local fauna habitat.
Providing conservation advice and support
With a focus on increasing habitat protection and conservation on public and private land, the project is designed to provide advice and support for local residents, schools and community groups to work together to encourage the conservation of local plants and animals in backyards, school yards and other areas.

The changes to our natural habitat has allowed some introduced animal species into our urban environment. Some animals are considered pests because they compete with native species for food and habitat, including our domestic pets because they will eat small native lizards and birds, or at least disrupt the behaviour of the native critters in our streets, parks and reserves.
