Ducks are more than welcome in Camden, and now there's some new signage to prove it.

Spring Farm residents recently asked Camden Council to install wildlife awareness signs near Burrell Road Riverside Park.

The sign - featuring a silhouette of a duck - reminds motorists driving in the area to be aware of the local wildlife - including the ducks - and slow down where there are animals about.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said the sign would be of great benefit to the Spring Farm area.

"It is important that we focus on protecting our wildlife and ensuring that everyone is able to play their part in doing so," she said.

"Our animals don't know how dangerous vehicles can be, so we must be proactive in making sure they can live safely in their homes, just as we do as humans.

"It is great to hear that the sign was requested by the Spring Farm residents.

"It really shows our sense of community and awareness for our surroundings."

It's not just ducks that call the region home and occasionally wander onto our roads.

Other local wildlife in the Camden area include:

  • wombats
  • wallabies
  • kangaroos
  • turtles
