Great pictures of the Greater Glider on an immensely sad occasion. Did the Glider survive?

Yes. Currently with WIRES but doing well. Also had a pouch young which is alive too.

If the bush is wrecked then it can be released in my unburnt patch - that is if our place escapes fire over the next few months.

Our place is also a possible release site for animals struggling after the fires (also provided the bush survives)

GG can survive post fire but most of the population dies from starvation. I have survey data on arboreal mammals from Meroo and Murramarang and it would be appropriate to resurvey these sites. However, given the lack of funding I can not see this happening. A real shame as the populations around Jervis bay and Conjola NP appear to have declined signficantly.

As there has been viral interest expressed on our Facebook page - 35,000 views, 380 shares - we should set up a GoFundMe campaign to support a survey. (I'll email you Gary)

Hi George , We would like permission to use your photograph in an environmental campaign ...are you ok with that? cheers, Nick

Dear George, Thanks for you help doing the GG surveys in Murramarang NP. I would also like permission to use this image in a scientific article on the species.

cheers
