Breeding Program - Mahogany Glider
The only captive bred mahogany glider that has been released to the wild had great difficulty learning to glide (and especially brake) on release, and his many crash landings and inability to evade predators very nearly led to his demise. Facilities such as this were not available. But now we have combined scientific knowledge (from many years of hard-slog midnight fieldwork), expertise of captive breeding facility design & enrichment, and a family commitment to conservation, to achieve a recognised necessity of pre-release conditioning for a threatened species.
