About This Project
The Yellow-bellied glider (YBG) is a unique animal that glides between trees of woodlands in North-eastern Australia which are threatened by grazing and logging. Since their population sizes are unknown, we can’t push for habitat conservation. Because YBG are very vocal, we may be able to use their calls to distinguish between individuals to determine how many are around. We will do this by developing mobile mini labs that record and analyze calls but can also take photos with infrared cameras.
