Wildlife Queensland presents: Threatened Glider Recovery
In this FREE Wildlife Queensland webinar, Queensland Glider Network Projects Manager Matt Cecil hosts presenters Paul Revie (Wildlife Queensland), Rachel Lyons (Noosa & District Landcare Group), and Liz Gould (Healthy Land and Water) as they discuss the conservation needs of SEQ's large gliders post-bushfire and the techniques and survey methods being used to find and safeguard these species.

With a particular focus on the endangered greater glider (Petauroides volans) and yellow-bellied glider (Petaurus australis), this webinar also elaborates on the outcomes of multifocal surveying methods and public awareness-raising activities under the umbrella of the Federal Government's Bushfire Recovery for Wildlife and Their Habitats Program, which is helping conserve these and other species following the severe bushfires of 2019–2020.


This project was funded by the Australian Government's Bushfire Recovery for Wildlife and their Habitats Program.

Matt Cecil
Projects Manager @Wildlife Queensland
Matt’s career in wildlife began in 2001 while holidaying in Tasmania: he visited a local wildlife park, desperate to see a Tasmanian devil, and somehow landed a job at the park as an animal keeper, starting the very next week. Eight years, one zoology degree and several bite marks later, Matt returned to Brisbane to defrost. Matt joined the Wildlife Queensland team in 2014. The projects run by Wildlife Queensland and its Branches are a fantastic way for the community to get involved with, and learn about, wildlife in their local area. Sparking this interest in people is, in his opinion, a huge challenge for wildlife conservation. Wildlife Queensland’s projects are a real and honest way of generating this interest. Matt aims to continue growing the participation level and number of community wildlife projects such as PlatypusWatch, Quoll Seekers Network, QLD Glider Network and Richmond Birdwing Conservation Network to put wildlife at the forefront of the minds of community members.
