Future glider surveys

Main project over but surveys continuing

Several residents around the Scenic Rim are continuin to seek for gliders or set motion sensing cameras.

Let us know:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • if you’d like us to do a survey on your property
  • if you’d like us to set a motion-sensing camera on your wooded property (or would like advice on buying one of your own)

AND PLEASE CHECK FOR GLIDERS WHENEVER YOU CAN AND LET US KNOW IF YOU SEE ANY!

We’d especially like to know what the gliders are doing, so we know how best to enhance damage habitats. What tree and shrub species are they getting sap or nectar from?  What trees are they nesting in, and how high up? What sorts of habitats are they in?  Bill O’Sullivan has been surprised to find how far from the creeks he has found squirrel gliders and feathertail gliders, on high, dry ridges on his property at Duck Creek. Dale Anderson has seen squirrel gliders near Laravale traveling along the ground to reach the flowers on the grass trees.
