With less than 120 remaining in the wild, the Gilbert’s potoroo is critically endangered and at serious risk of extinction.

It was previously thought to be extinct, until a tiny population was discovered in 1994 at Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve, Western Australia.

Because of its sensitive nature and extremely restricted diet of native truffles, Gilbert’s potoroos don’t do well in captivity. So the creation of safe haven populations is the only way to increase their numbers.

They’re threatened by fire, feral predators, inadequate gene flow between the populations and climate change.

Your donation will help the Gilbert’s Potoroo Action Group support critical recovery actions undertaken by scientists and volunteers to help this species survive.
