What are we doing?
PECT is working with students from five local schools to create wildlife corridors alongside fences and borders through seed bombing. This project will attract bees, birds and butterflies into predominantly urban environments, helping prevent the decline of wildlife.
These wildlife corridors will be located on or near school grounds and will be used to provide opportunities to learn about and connect with nature, benefiting up to 2,000 children and community members.
The schools that have been selected are Hampton Hargate Primary, Norwood Primary, Ravensthorpe Primary, Discovery Primary and Voyager Academy (with their shared fence line).
