backyard biodiversity stall - australia day 2016

Did we see you at the Backyard Biodiversity stall?

The stall was part of the City of Playford's Australia Day celebrations. Check out the photos by scrolling through them above, or view the whole set here.

Activities included the Possum Pledge, where residents were photographed making commitments to boost the backyard biodiversity of the city and making shorebird mobiles to celebrate the creation of the new Adelaide Inernational Bird Sanctuary, which will include Playford's entire coastal strip.

It was a great day! Thanks go to all those who took part.



Sustainability is all about finding ways in which we can still enjoy a fantastic quality of life, but by using means that do not reduce the opportunity for other people, both now and in the future, to do the same.

There are many simple, important and rewarding changes we can make to reduce our own ecological ‘footprint’. The sections below have been compiled to inform you on the major issues, and to show you how you can take control of your sustainability. Think Global, Act Local – it’s up to all of us!
