Wildlife Plant Conservation Department Thailand
The refuge will do more than help wildlife. It will add beauty and excitement to the land, thereby making it a more delightful place for people as well as animals. WHAT DO ANIMALS NEED? Animals look for four things; food, water, hiding places, and nesting places. What attracts a hummingbird won't interest a robin or a squirrel. Hummingbirds feed on nectar and insects that haunt the throats of flowers. They will be attracted by petunias, weigela, and wisteria to name a few.
Robins eat earthworms and ground insects. You need moist, rich soil to attract them. Squirrels seem to be attracted to many things. Every home we have ever lived has had an abundance of squirrels. I think
they have always been attracted to our apple trees.
