Wildlife Queensland’s Queensland Glider Network was excited to be a part of Logan City Council’s Conservations Incentives Program Celebration Day on Sunday, 1 March.

Logan City Council’s conservations incentives programs work with property owners to manage the natural areas of their property, providing access to:

  • free plants
  • herbicide
  • land management advice
  • various information workshops.

Over 700 residents attended the event, providing an opportunity for the Queensland Glider Network team to talk with many environmentally aware locals about the conservation issues faced by glider species found in the Logan area.

A display of glider specimens loaned from the Queensland Museum made for fantastic conversation starters. It was pleasing to learn that so many attendees had gliders inhabiting their bushland properties.

Have you spotted gliders in Logan?

The Queensland Glider Network is very keen to learn more about both greater glider and yellow-bellied glider populations within the Logan local government area.

If you have spotted one of these gliders, please email glider@wildlife.org.au and let us know!
