Glideways Project

Hinterland Bush Links has received a grant from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife (through the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative (GERI)) to enable us to carry out bush restoration and connectivity work to support glider species in our region. Four other groups in NSW and Victoria are involved in this combined project known as the Glideways Project.
The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is home to 5 of the 6 glider species found in Australia; the tiny Feathertail Glider, Sugar Glider, Squirrel Glider, Yellow-bellied Glider and Greater Glider. Some of these are listed as threatened or vulnerable due to habitat loss, particularly large old trees, and habitat fragmentation .. All species of glider need tree hollows to provide nesting sites, and these begin to form when trees are over 100 years old.
Hinterland Bush Links is working with land owners in the Elaman Creek and Cedar Creek catchments to restore and connect glider habitat through revegetation work and nest box installations. In this way we are taking steps to build a resilient glider community. This connectivity will also support a range of other species such as koalas.
Through this restoration work these iconic creatures will be able to move easily through the landscape, access new homes and build healthy glider populations.
