Save the Southern Greater Glider

Strathbogie State Forest was recently declared an Immediate Protection Area by the Victorian Government in recognition of it’s importance for protecting the nationally endangered Southern Greater Glider. 

Despite this, planned burns by the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) will degrade upwards of 1300 hectares of crucial habitat in the Strathbogie Forest, this year alone. 400 threatened Southern Greater Gliders are expected to perish in the burns.

Research and modeling by DEECA is inadequate.  The decision to burn habitat without oversight will put endangered species at risk of extinction. We must act now.
