There are many ways to help the wildlife in your backyard during a heatwave. You may already have a birdbath, but the birds might need some help finding it. Try hanging a “drip jug”–a plastic milk bottle with a small hole on the bottom & filled with water. The sound of the water dripping will alert the birds of its location and help them cool down quicker. It’s also a great way to reuse a container! In the garden, it’s a good idea to spread mulch. This great water-conserving practice helps little worms and invertebrates get a good supply of water. Be sure to water your plants as bees and butterflies rely on droplets to keep them properly hydrated. If you live in an area facing drought conditions, you can help wildlife stay hydrated by putting a bucket in the shower to catch drinkable water while you get clean. Just make sure no soap gets in the bucket! Do you have any tips to help our furry and feathery friends stay hydrated? Let us know in the comments.
