About Glideways

Glideways is a collaborative program aimed at conserving gliders and their habitat through targeted projects in strategic locations.

We work hand-in-hand with local communities, landholders and organisations to create connections for gliders across the landscape.

Get Involved

There are many exciting opportunities to get involved in Glideways all of which make a difference for our gliders.

From urban homeowners who want to install a nest box on their property, to farmers who want to protect habitat on their land, everyone has something to contribute.

Why do we care?

The Abercrombie Catchment is home to five of the six species of glider found in Australia. Sadly, they are declining due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Gliders are a unique and special part of the Australian landscape. If we do nothing to assist these iconic marsupials, populations will continue to fall and we will lose them from our landscape forever. Their loss is our loss.


In turn, many other species with similar habitat and conservation needs live within the same area as gliders such as Spotted-tailed Quolls, Flame Robins and Koalas. This means that by meeting the needs of gliders we are also supporting the plants and animals that share their home.
