‘Dine and Shine’ with Wildlife Queensland at Crows Nest with our Queensland Glider Network FREE half-day workshop, dinner, wildlife presentation, cultural display, and optional spotlighting event.

 

Join guest presenters Paul Revie (Qld Glider Network), Jessica Lovegrove-Walsh (Friends of Nerang National Park), as well as the crew from Geckoes Wildlife Presentations for a FREE half-day educational glider workshop and optional nighttime spotlighting at Crows Nest, near Toowoomba.

Enjoy a light lunch and dinner while you learn more about the region’s glorious gliding mammals, with a particular focus on the endangered southern and central greater glider (Petauroides volans) and the vulnerable yellow-bellied glider (Petaurus australis) and even take in a cultural dance performance.

Attendees will:

  • get up-close with some of Queensland’s adorable gliders, with an engaging native animal presentation by Geckoes Wildlife Presentations
  • thrill to a traditional dance performance
  • learn all about the preferred habitats, habits, and lifestyles of Queensland’s largest gliding marsupials and what makes them so hollow-dependent and at risk of extinction
  • learn about best-practice surveying and spotlighting techniques for gliders, and discover how landholders and the public can provide useful data that helps conservation biologists and ecologists as they work to save these species
  • enjoy a light lunch and dinner while meeting like-minded nature lovers
  • take an (optional – limited to 40 people) informative early evening spotlighting tour around Dingo Mountain and hopefully spot some wild gliders! To book for spotlighting, please choose the ‘with spotlighting’ ticketing item.
