Mungarru Lodge Sanctuary is our home. We have shared this wonderful place with the most stunning collection of wildlife for nearly 2 decades. We are heartbroken by the damage this cyclone has wrought on this wonderful place and all its creatures. Our house and my studio have minimal damage compared to so many but the habitat that has so enriched our lives has been devastated. Our glider enclosures have been damaged but we had safeguarded our 2 precious recovering gliders and they are OK. As you will see in the pictures below our miraculous released glider "Stoney" survived the cyclone to give us hope that many of his kind may also have managed to shelter.- he gives us hope. The entire extent of the habitat for this endangered species has been severely damaged and we are urgently working with the QPWS to start a support feeding program....we will not be able to assist many but it just might make a difference - if you live adjacent to Mahogany Glider habitat and would like to assist in this program or if you have sighted a mahogany glider since the cyclone - please contact me

Birds hit the windows for days after the cyclone..particularly kingfishers "Stoney"   a mahogany glider released on our sancuary 5 years ago arrived in the kitchen in broad daylight looking battered, exhausted and starving...but alive

One lone male agile wallaby has fought his way back thru the fallen forest to the house. We have sighted one long nosed bandicoot and a lone Euromys (white- tailed Rat)
