Barbed-wire, poorly-maintained and loose fencing can cause problems for our wildlife. Sugar gliders and flying foxes can get their membranes caught on old rusty barbs, and kangaroos can get their feet entangled in loose or hard-to-see wires.
Wildlife Friendly Fencing is fencing that is safe and effective for wildlife, people and livestock. It:
- does not entangle or harm wildlife,
- allows the appropriate free movement of wildlife across rural and urban landscapes,
- may mean no fence at all
