Greater glider, Petauroides volans
Listed as vulnerable on a national basis, the once-common greater glider (Petauroides volans) is now facing serious decline. The gliders’ nesting hollows (found in old trees) are being lost in land clearing and industrial-scale logging operations. Gliders need several large, hollow branches in different trees to survive.
