Wildlife Rope Bridge Update, Yarra Ranges

13 December 2023

Our project partners at Ecology and Restoration Australia recently installed close to 100 metres of rope bridge in storm affected vegetation in the Yarra Ranges Shire.  The bridges will connect remaining canopy, meaning that arboreal marsupials like possums and gliders don’t need to come down to the ground as much, where they are at risk from predators.

The wildlife rope bridges were built by members of the community and students from Healesville Primary School, as part of our wildlife rope bridge project in partnership with Yarra Ranges Council. Please see here for more details on this project.

Stay tuned for the results of camera monitoring to see who uses these “canopy highways”.
