Habitat

By rewilding Bilyana we aim to attract native 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.

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).

"Our pioneer species are coming in well! With a bit of rain recently, our trees are growing well, beginning to reshoot and flower. We are observing more life and biodiversity: insects are making their nests, there are lizards, and plenty of worms! The Southern Cassowary has been spotted in our forest!"
