Relinking the landscape
K2W is home to five of the six glider species found in Australia – the Squirrel Glider, Yellow-bellied Glider, Feathertail Glider, Sugar Glider and Greater Glider. The Mahogany Glider does not live in the area, however it does occur in other parts of the Great Eastern Ranges of which the K2W Link forms an integral part.
Sadly, populations of these unique animals are falling due to habitat loss and fragmentation. If we do nothing to assist gliders, populations will continue to fall and we will lose them from our landscape forever.
Through targeted projects in strategic locations we are working to help prevent further losses, whilst supporting the habitat and connectivity needs of the many other plants and animals that share their homes.
