Home is where the hollow is …
… it’s a long-term investment!
Would you like to support me?

Did you know that Queensland is home to all six of Australia’s glider species?
… would you like to help us keep it that way?
Around 400 Australian fauna species use tree hollows including gliders. However local populations of all our glider species are increasingly impacted by habitat loss and fragmentation, invasive species, and other threatening processes.
Join our Adopt a Glider program and you will be supporting our work for the survival of gliders and their habitat.
For a donation of $60 or more you can symbolically 'Adopt a Glider' for one year.
What do I receive?
If you choose, we will send you an information pack about gliders to share with your family and friends. The ‘Adoption’ also makes a great gift for Christmas or birthdays – so your valuable contribution gives not just once but twice.
Your presentation folder on gliders will include:
- personalised adoption certificate
- colour brochure featuring gliders and what you can do to help them in your local area
- glider CD containing posters, 6 species wallchart and glider articles
- membership to the Queensland Glider Network (QGN)
- QGN newsletter
We will keep you up to date with how our glider projects are progressing by sending you regular project e-newsletters plus Wildlife Queensland's regular monthly my.Wildlife ebulletin.
Information on activities and success stories of our Queensland Glider Network and updates on the mahogany glider recovery program can be found on this website.
Where does my money go?
Because your adoption is symbolic, donations to 'Adopt a Glider' are used to fund on-ground conservation projects such as habitat restoration, installation and monitoring of glider nest boxes, survey equipment as well as state-wide campaigns to ensure that gliders and their habitat are taken into account in development planning processes.
Is my 'adoption' payment tax deductible?
