Habitat

By rewilding Bilyana we aim to attract ative fauna; birds, butterflies, native bees and other pollinators.

This habitat is home to the Mahogany Glider.

The forest will improve the conservation status of the Mahogany Glider through habitat protection and recovery.

Forest was removed to create space for fruit trees. Today the land is degraded and unused.

Benefits

Planting a forest at Bilyana will:

  • Improving degraded and unused land

  • Increased connectivity, food source trees and micro habitat for Mahogany Glider

  • Reduce soil run off

The Mahogany Glider

The Mahogany Glider (Petaurus gracilis) is an endangered gliding possum native to a small region of coastal Queensland in Australia.

The Mahogany Glider is one of Australia’s most threatened arboreal mammals. It is distinguished externally from other petauridae, particularly its closest relative the squirrel glider Petaurus norfolcensis, by its larger size, a long and relatively short-haired tail, and buff to mahogany-brown belly.

The mahogany glider is listed as ‘Endangered’ under the Queensland Nature Conservation Act 1992 (NCA) and the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
