Australia’s endangered wildlife gets lifeline from invention that hollows trees

Stefica Nicol Bikes of Reuters reports on a conservation tool that is saving endangered species in Australia.

The C3 Take
  • Australian conservation biologist Matt Stephens has invented a tool called the Hollowhog which creates tree hollows in a matter of hours. In nature this process takes 70-100 years.
  • Tree hollows are critical for providing food and shelter to 303 of Australia’s native habitats.
  • These artificially made tree hollows will last for hundreds of years and will be key to conserving endangered species.

“To date, thousands of hollows carved by Hollowhog tools have been installed around Australia, with the technology in use by state and federal government agencies, as well as land care groups.”
