Habitat for hollow-dwelling species

Habitat for hollow-dwelling species

Human activity has reduced available habitat for animals. Tree hollows are an important but increasingly limited source of shelter and nesting space for wildlife in urban and agricultural areas.

 In groups, your task is to design and build:

  • a camera monitoring device to observe the types of animals who inhabit the reserve
  • an appropriate artificial habitat for one of the identified species.
