The K2W Petaurus Connections project builds on the current Kanangra-Boyd to Wyangala Link (K2W) BushConnect program. It will link habitats and restore functional linkages across the Gillindich-Wyangala landscape. The project is co-funded by FNPW and the NSW Government through the Saving our Species Conservation Co-Funding Scheme and will operate over the years 2019 to 2021.
This project was funded through generous donations from FNPW supporters across Australia and beyond.

Targeted interventions in strategic locations will help prevent further population decline of key arboreal and woodland species and ensure the long-term persistence of species in the K2W region.
The K2W partnership has been working collaboratively since 2012 to protect wildlife and natural resources by creating connections across the Kanangra-Boyd to Wyangala Link. The new funding will add another district to the existing program (Gillindich-Wyangala) and focus on targeted interventions to prevent further population decline and ensure the long-term persistence of threatened Squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis), Spotted-tailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus) and Yellow bellied glider (Petaurus australis) across four districts.
