About My Wildlife Galleries

Planting native plants can help attract all kinds of wildlife. Small animals like insects (e.g. butterflies) are attracted to the plants. This attracts larger animals like birds. Native plants are at the bottom of the food chain. Without them our wildlife suffers. Alien plants offer little to no value to wildlife.
