Water for Wildlife

Help us get water to thirsty wildlife

During times of drought, intense heat or bushfires wildlife can struggle to access drinking water. We can help support our native wildlife by providing accessible safe, drinking water.Water for Wildlife 3 Images2

Camden Council has partnered with Animals Australia as part of the ‘Water for Wildlife’ project which aims to provide a stable and reliable source of water for our unique and precious wildlife. The project was initially introduced to help thirsty wildlife post bushfires. While the Camden Local Government Area has not been directly impacted by recent bushfires, these drinking stations will be beneficial for wildlife during Camden’s often hot and dry summer.

‘Water for Wildlife’ drinking stations allow ground dwelling mammals such as wallabies, wombats, echidnas, and birds access to additional water. Each drinking station can hold 15 litres of water and will need to be checked regularly to ensure wildlife have consistent access to safe water.

We need your help!

Camden Council is installing two ‘Water for Wildlife’ drinking stations within George Caley Reserve, Mount Annan.

We are asking surrounding residents who regularly visit the Reserve, to report any observations of wildlife using the water stations or maintenance requests for the water stations, directly to Council using the form below. 

By letting us know any observations you make about the water stations when using the Reserve, we will be able to determine how this project is helping our local wildlife. 

Project Dates

  • Mid to late-December - ‘Water for Wildlife’ stations installed by Council
  • January to end of March 2022 – Resident monitoring period
