WHY BACKYARD WILDLIFE HABITAT:
As human development continues, wildlife habitats in the affected areas are altered and become less able to support the species that previously lived there. Also, animals that are better adapted to human habitat may increase their presence as a result of development. One way we can help is to create enjoyable and environmentally friendly backyard habitats. The actions we take on our own properties can have a significant effect on the species that share this habitat with us.
