Go wild for World Environment Day!

CrocodileTo highlight some of the creatures that are affected by the loss of biodiversity in urban areas, there will be a native wildlife display as part of the day’s activities.

Participants can get up close to wildlife including crocodiles, turtles, gliders, bettongs, goannas and geckos, plus a range other creepy crawlies.

Other activities on offer include a native plant treasure hunt, and nature tours held on the hour at 11am, midday and 1pm.

Lord Mayor Michael Harbison said World Environment Day encourages people to get active about environmental issues.

“In the City of Adelaide we are surrounded by Park Lands, a natural asset that we cannot afford to take for granted. By getting involved with World Environment Day, we all have a chance to learn about the effect our urban life has on the environment in which we live.”

“Adelaide City Council is committed to working with community groups to help stop biodiversity loss,” said the Lord Mayor.

The special World Environment Day event, which runs from 10.30am to 1.30pm, will be held at Tulya Wodli/ Bonython Park (entrance via Port Road). To register for the nature tours, contact Adelaide City Council on 8203 7203.

The 2010 World Environment Day nature experience is a joint event held by Adelaide City Council and the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board.
