The Greater Glider Recovery Project

The Southern Greater Glider, once found all over eucalypt forests from South East Queensland to Southern Victoria, has suffered regional extinctions and alarming declines. In the montane ash forests of Victoria’s Central Highlands alone, greater glider populations have declined by 80 per cent in the last 30 years. Today, greater gliders are listed as nationally endangered. With 80 to 100 years needed to regenerate the trees they call home, we do not have time to waste. Help us save the Southern Greater Glider and be a part of science-driven initiatives toward forest restoration and recovery.

This fund will support long-term field-based research that provides the scientific basis for biodiversity conservation and forest management in the magnificent Mountain Ash forests of the Central Highlands of Victoria. A particular focus of this work is to conserve the Critically Endangered Leadbeater’s Possum.

Victorian Central Highlands Research

The Victorian Central Highlands Research Fund will support the following activities:

  1. Maintain the long-term ecological research and monitoring to keep building the science case for the establishment of a large ecological reserve to conserve the Critically Endangered Leadbeater’s Possum, as well as other extraordinary arboreal marsupials.
  2. Continue (and further expand) the key scientific research and monitoring work aimed at conserving forest biodiversity in Victoria’s Mountain Ash forests.
  3. Continue to connect strongly with the general public to bring people to the forest and experience the magnificent Mountain Ash forests. To date, more than 15,000 volunteers have participated in our long-term, repeated surveys of Leadbeater’s Possum and contributed significantly to conservation efforts.
  4. Widely communicate key scientific findings to a broad audience.
