RACV Wild Bytes - Stories From Your Backyard

Have you ever wondered what to do when you’ve been swooped by a magpie or when a blue-tongued lizard suddenly appears in your yard or maybe you’ve found a possum curled up inside your garage roof?

 

Well, come along to one of our FREE educational events to find out, and to learn lots of other cool tips and tricks to co-exist better with our wonderful native wildlife! There is actually a lot you can do for wildlife in your own backyard, and we’re here to help. In the meantime, have a look at our helpful fact sheets for some guidance.

 

As RACV’s Environment & Sustainability partner, we will be presenting our events right around Melbourne and regional Victoria.
