Hunters Hill Bushcare and Habitat Network have been named winners of a Partnerships for Landcare Award at the 2021 Regional Bushcare and Landcare Awards.

The award recognises work to engage a range of stakeholders including the local community in rehabilitating nine kilometres of small bird habitat corridor throughout the Municipality of Hunters Hill.

The Habitat Network and Hunters Hill Bushcare are helping people do their bit for small birds and other native fauna
by putting habitat back in gardens and by working with local agencies, schools, Scouts and other habitat projects to improve the habitat values of our bushland and corridor linkages.

Small native birds, such as the superb fairy-wren, variegated fairy-wren, red-browed finch, eastern spinebill, eastern yellow
robin, spotted pardalote, white-browed scrubwren, silvereye and other “lbbs” (little brown birds), are the birds that people ‘used to see around’.

Habitat Network in partnership with Hunters Hill Bushcare encourages all land managers, bushland workers and home gardeners within the small bird habitat corridor to consider how to help small native birds and to create and reconnect habitat areas.

The partnership has been successful in engaging with a range of key stakeholders in the local community and connecting and extending habitat within the small bird habitat corridor throughout the Municipality of Hunter’s Hill.
