Gardening for Wildlife

One of the exciting benefits of gardening with native plants is their ability to attract a wide range of wildlife, especially native species. In fact, the Gottlieb Native Garden is host to over 1000 unique species of animals – from ants to bats to birds to lizards. This catalogue lists all the native fauna that have been discovered in the garden. Launch catalogue of fauna


Various methods are used for assembling data on animals in the garden, including observation, collecting and photographing with both hand-held and remote cameras. Some species of animals are simple to identify. These would include mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. Arthropods can be a different story. We do our best to identify insects, arachnids and similar animals to genus or species level, but sometimes have to settle with simply placing them in a tribe or family.
