Squirrel Glider

Petaurus norfolcensis

CONSERVATION STATUS

Globally: Vulnerable
Victoria: Endangered

Our squirrel glider colony delights visitors and allows us to tell their story. Logging in their home range has removed old growth trees, reducing the availability of nest hollows.

The gliders breed every year and we co-operate with zoos and wildlife parks in maintaining a captive population. Members of this species are being held and managed under a ZAA small population management program.

You can see squirrel gliders on evening tours and also often in our Conservation in Action wildlife show.
