Gliders are a type of possum. What makes them different from other members of their family is that they sport a gliding membrane on each side that extends from wrist to angle. These ‘wings’ enable the possum to glide between trees in search of food, shelter and breeding partners. All species of glider are dependant on old hollow bearing trees which they nest within, many using several different dens within their home range. Sadly habitat loss and fragmentation, and feral predators such as cats, foxes and dogs have led to the decline of glider populations in many parts of Australia. Through Glideways, we are working to reconnect the land, enabling these special marsupials to move more easily between areas, provide new homes and enable populations to expand.
