Become a nature detective with this easy activity. You don’t need a big garden to make a wildlife pond. All you need is a large bucket or an old plastic storage box that’s placed in a safe place and you can create an awesome animal habitat.
- To start, buy some native pondweed from a garden centre to keep the water healthy.
- Next, add plants, rocks, old bricks and maybe some homemade decorations for your local wildlife to play among.
- Make sure the pond is easy to access and is placed in a good spot to catch rainwater.
- Be sure to check the pond often to see if it has enough water, pondweed and most of all, lots of exciting wildlife visitors.
