Summary

This project aims to restore and conserve critical landscape linkages within endangered mahogany glider habitat. Additionally, endangered southern cassowary corridors will be linked, improving movement through this shared habitat. This will be achieved through re-vegetation (planting 2485 plants) and weeding activities across 0.71ha. Three kilometres of fencing will be erected to exclude cattle from the creek. The applicant will monitor the uptake and use of the site by mahogany gliders through the installation of wildlife cameras and den boxes.
