Dr John Martin manages the Hollows As Homes project with the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, which is transitioning to the Wildlife Assist project in partnership with a range of organisations around Australia including Taronga Conservation Society. In this episode, we speak about the importance of tree hollows, why native miner birds are more ecologically destructive than introduced miner birds, and his best tips for building habitat in your backyard (which surprisingly don’t necessarily include habitat boxes or bee hotels).
