Living with Wildlife

With a huge network of 165 parks covering 248 hectares, Hurstville City is home to a rich variety of native animals, including possums, wallabies, flying foxes, lizards, birds and fish.

As Australian bushland has been diminished through increased urbanisation, many of the natural homes of native animals have also been lost. As a result, wildlife occasionally seeks sanctuary in Hurstville City homes, backyards and community spaces.

Any plan to reduce the impact of native species in urban areas must balance the needs of vulnerable species’, the community and the local environment.
