10 tips for cities to become greener while creating habitats for wildlife

1. vertical gardens and green roofs: Use vertical surfaces such as walls and roofs to create green spaces. Vertical gardens and green roofs are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also provide a habitat for birds, insects and other small animals.

2. plant native species: use plant species that are native to the region. Native plants are often better adapted to the local climate and soil conditions and provide habitat and food for local wildlife.

3. creation of biotopes: Integrate various habitats such as ponds, wetlands, dry stone walls and wildflower meadows into urban green spaces. This biotope diversity attracts a large number of animals and promotes biodiversity.

4. use of rainwater management: Rainwater can be used to irrigate green spaces, which not only reduces water consumption but also promotes ecological diversity by creating natural habitats.

5. creation of insect hotels: Install insect hotels in urban green spaces to create habitats for beneficial insects such as bees, butterflies and ladybugs. These little creatures play an important role in pollinating plants and regulating pests.

6. preservation of old trees and green spaces: Preserve existing old trees and green spaces in the city, as they provide important habitats for various animal species. These areas serve as retreats and food sources for birds, squirrels and other wild animals.

7. creation of natural playgrounds: Design playgrounds with natural materials and elements such as sand, wood and stones. These not only offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to conventional play equipment, but also encourage children to discover nature and create habitats for ground-dwelling creatures.

8. integration of nesting boxes and feeders: Install nesting boxes for birds and bats as well as feeders for birds in urban green spaces. This supports the local wildlife and offers the opportunity to observe wild animals at close range.

9. creation of green corridors: Connect different green spaces in the city with green corridors such as tree avenues, street greening and cycle paths with planted verges. These corridors promote the movement of animals between different habitats and contribute to the conservation of biodiversity.

10. environmental education and citizen participation: raise awareness among the population about the importance of green spaces and the promotion of biodiversity in urban areas. Organize environmental education programs, community gardens and conservation projects to raise awareness and encourage citizen participation.
