Mahogany Gliders - Cardwell and Ingham
Are you looking for a different way to spend your time? Why not try volunteering with Conservation Volunteers! We have some great projects on offer.
Mahogany Gliders are rare, nocturnal mammals only found in specific areas of North Queensland. The shy often elusive night feeders feast on nectar and pollen from a number of different species of trees and shrubs and rely on hollow eucalypts for nesting.
They are listed as endangered and with your help Conservation Volunteers can assist with species surveys and habitat restoration.
“The effects of Cyclone Yasi are still evident and practical hands on conservation activities are very important in helping nature refuge habitat” explains Karen Vidler, Regional Manager Townsville.
In partnership with Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM), join a team to contribute in a practical way to better understand and preserve the species and habitat.
There are two upcoming projects departing from Townsville; Monday 28 Nov to 2 Dec in the Cardwell region and 12 to 16 Dec in the Ingham region. The cost of $208 covers transport to and from Townsville, meals and accommodation for 5 days.
To reserve a place please contact Wendy Willcox 0409 934 263 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
