Western Pygmy Possum

Nesting box building
Nesting box building

Where are you pygmy possums!!!!

Over this period a lot of hard work has been done to make nesting boxes for installation, a community day was undertaken where volunteers made an additional 40 boxes which will now be installed in high conservation areas on private land.

The monitoring of the installed boxes continued with no possums as yet, but the regionally endangered yellow-footed antechinus has been using the nesting boxes in a few locations.    

Volunteers who have come and undertook the checking of the boxes have enjoyed seeing the amazing habitat still present and are anticipating the one time we look in a box to see this cryptic species.    

We have a lot of work to come with an additional 100 boxes to be installed before winter, we have had overwhelming responses from private landowners wanting to join the program and have boxes installed. 

Thank you to all the volunteers and supporters of this program.
