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.

Who we are

The Kanangra-Boyd to Wyangala (K2W) Link partnership is a collection of local landholders, commmunities and organisations who have been working since 2012 to reconnect our wildlife and natural resources by creating linkages across the landscape between the Greater Blue Mountains and Wyangala Dam. The K2W Link forms part of the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative, one of the world’s largest conservation projects, that is engaging communities across 3,600km from the Grampians in Victoria, to Far North Queensland.

K2W supports a broad range of onground works across different land tenures and community engagement initiatives.

The projects we work on are carefully selected to meet the needs of gliders whilst also conserving the broader environment in which they live.

Inspiring the next generation

Experience has shown that education helps to instil a greater sense of care for, and connection to nature.

Through the development of fun and informative learning material and opportunities for students to get involved in caring for their local patch of bushland we help to create the next generation of nature carers.
