About the Event

Our surveys for the Greater Gliders are back! 

We’re back in the Tallarook Forest looking for the wonderful, nationally endangered, Southern Greater Glider. 

Over 150 were found in the forest during our surveys during 2020-2022 which makes Tallarook Forest one of the Greater Glider hotspots of Victoria. This helped to stop native forest logging in the Forest, and we achieved a Special Protection Zone for them from the state government. 

But we were only looking in the 600 hectares proposed for logging. We are now heading to the 2,000 hectare southern half of the Forest, to see how far their range extends. We’d love to be able to create a biolink between the Tallarook Forest and the Mt Disappointment Forest, to enable the Greater Gliders to expand southwards to Mt Disappointment forest area, where their numbers are depleted. Knowing where the Gliders are in the southern part of the forest will help with planning the biolink corridor.

The meeting spot is the corner of Main Rd and Cable Track, in Tallarook Forest. (Main Road is the extension of Ennis Road.) This is about half an hour's drive east of the Hume Freeway, starting at the Ennis Rd turnoff. 

We’ll be getting to know our forest a little better, and searching for native and endangered wildlife, such as the Greater Glider in the photo. 

Please bring a torch, and a comfortable set of walking shoes. All welcome. 

See you there!
