Squirrel Glider Nest Boxes Will Provide Essential Habitat

Thirty nest boxes have been installed in the rail corridor between Cowra and Young as part of the John Holland Squirrel Glider Conservation Project. Lachlan Valley Tree Services expertly climbed and installed the boxes in a variety of eucalypts in a location where Squirrel Gliders were detected earlier in the year. Nest boxes play an important role in providing denning and nesting sites when there is a shortage of suitable natural habitat. All the nest boxes were constructed with rear entrances, which helps to discourage invasive bird species such as Starlings, and carpet has been attached to the inside of the lid to prevent European Bees attaching their hives.
