Plant Conservation Approaches and Techniques from an Australian Perspective

Wildlife conservation again entered his mind. January 31, 1894, Ernest Seton rode out to check a cluster of traps he had set and finally found Lobo. The gray wolf had each leg caught in four different traps. It was something Ernest Seton had never seen in all his years of trapping wolves. As he raised his rifle to end Lobo's life, the naturalist and wildlife lover took control. He couldn't pull the trigger.

It's important to do as much planning on paper as possible. This is particularly true if you plan to plant trees or implement a water feature. Once these elements are in the ground it can be time-consuming and costly to make changes. The more you can plan on paper, the more likely you will avoid problems when implementing your final design. Regardless of the type of wildlife you wish to attract, it's important to keep in mind that they all have the same basic needs: food, water, shelter and space. Food: Just like humans, wildlife requires food in order to survive.
