About the event
In this Wildlife Queensland webinar, Karin Cox hosts presenters Paul Revie (Wildlife Queensland), Rachel Lyons (Noosa & District Landcare Group), and Liz Gould (Healthy Land and Water) as they discuss the conservation needs of SEQ’s large gliders post-bushfire and the techniques and survey methods being used to find and safeguard these species.
With a particular focus on the endangered greater glider (Petauroides volans) and yellow-bellied glider (Petaurus australis), this webinar also elaborates on the outcomes of multifocal surveying methods and public awareness-raising activities under the umbrella of the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery for Wildlife and Their Habitats Program, which is helping conserve these and other species following the severe bushfires of 2019–2020.
This project was funded by the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery for Wildlife and their Habitats Program.
