Greater Gliders need a new national park in the Wombat Forest

The Wombat Forest, near Daylesford, is a vital refuge for the Greater Glider, Australia’s largest flying mammal. A new report suggests that a new national park here would secure long-term protection for this species that is in decline across the state.
