The mosquito season is about to begin – so I'm preparing our natural mosquito control arsenal. Mosquito coils aren't part of our mozzie control kit. Popping a mosquito coil by your table while enjoying a barbecue is as hazardous as having a chain smoker sit at your table. Instead we're welcoming microbats into our backyard.
Our children need to get up and close and personal with wildlife in order to care for their environment. They are not going to care about nature unless they know nature. We recently visited Irukandji Shark and Ray Encounters at Bobs Farm, Port Stephens and came away with an increased awareness of how we can help conserve our marine environment.
