Land for Wildlife

Land for WildlifeGib Gate is designated a Land for Wildlife site by the Wingecarribee Shire Council, with the School part of the Community Environment Network.

On our 10-acre campus, Gib Gate students from Preschool to Year 6 care for the natural habitat and native animals that also call Gib Gate home. Working closely with local community Aboriginal and Landcare groups, Gib Gate students from Preschool to Year 6 are creating a habitat to support the regeneration of native flora and fauna, including:

  • Planting trees as part of the local 'Glossies in the Mist' project to support the local population of endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos
  • Creating an Aboriginal Bush Tucker Garden 
  • Constructing and installing microbat nesting boxes
  • Constructing and installing native bird nesting boxes
  • Planting trees as part of the local Koala Wildlife Corridor project
