Would you like to create this experience in your garden? Do you want to enhance and protect our unique wildlife? Picture your garden: a key link in a community built wildlife corridor. A corridor connecting bushland habitat and bringing birds, butterflies and bees back to our backyards.

You can create a Certified Pollinator LinkTM Garden and be part of the solution to long term sustainability of our urban habitat. Whether you have a large backyard or a balcony garden in a unit block you can create a welcome haven for local wildlife. By Certifying, you are also contributing to ongoing education programs, research and development of creative options for sustainable urban wildlife habitat.

    What a great idea! Do I have to be in a particular part of Brisbane to register?

  2. this is so great, I love it! I hope we can link up the global community through our efforts to provide habitat for wildlife…

  3. I am looking for Pollinator Links people want to create. I used the Bowies Flat example because the Harty Street Kindergarten has asked me to do a talk. So I looked for a potential Pollinator Link from the kindergarten and named that link Bowies Flat Pollinator Link.

    Our vision is by the end of 2016 have Blue-banded Bees showing Pollinator Links all over Brisbane and perhaps Redlands, Logan and Morton. Then Queensland and Australia wide.

    There are backyard for wildlife projects around the world but the Sydney Habitat Stepping Stones http://www.habitatsteppingstones.org.au/ is the only other project that focuses on building wildlife corridors.

    Do you have a location that needs a Pollinator Link Paula?

    Does your mapping handle that? Caz
