Squirrel Glider Field Day

Mid Lachlan Landcare and Young District Landcare collaborated recently for the Squirrel Glider Field Day held at Crowther NSW (between Cowra and Young). The field day coincided with National Threatened Species Day held each year on September 7th to commemorate the death of the last Tasmanian Tiger held in Hobart Zoo in 1936. A woodland nature walk at Clover Leigh Golf Club provided an engaging and beautiful location for the day where 120 students from five primary schools attended to learn about local threatened species including how a nest box program is providing alternative habitat for squirrel gliders, and how to identify and monitor superb parrots with the Office of Environment and Heritage’s threatened species team. Students also had an amazing up-close wildlife experience with the Zoomobile from Sydney’s Taronga Zoo.
