Yellow-bellied Glider

Petaurus australis



Australia’s second largest glider is found in the mountain forests of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Loss of habitat has seen its numbers decline 30% in recent years.

This species has proven difficult to breed in captivity and Moonlit Sanctuary is working to change that in case a breeding program is needed in the future. We were rewarded with our first birth late 2018 with twins; a rarity, and an achievement that was repeated in 2020.

You can see yellow-bellied gliders on evening tours.
