Looks like we’re in for a hot summer, and while its important to keep our pets (and ourselves) cool and hydrated, wildlife struggle in the heat too.
Placing a shallow dish of fresh water helps our native wildlife survive heat waves. Here are some tips to make that water as accessible as possible.
- Use a broad, shallow dish, tray or bird bath
- Place it in shade or in a sheltered position near plants to help wildlife feel more secure.
- Use branches, twigs or river stones to provide a means for small animals and insects to climb out of the water and prevent drowning.
