Help the mountain pygmy-possum
This cutie – a mountain pygmy-possum – is our only true hibernating alpine marsupial.
The species has become critically endangered due to habitat loss, fragmented subpopulations, bushfires, decline of its food (the bogong moth), impacts of climate change, and predation from ferals.
After 10 years of planning and construction, a new breeding centre at Secret Creek Sanctuary in Lithgow, New South Wales, opened in September 2022 with 14 possums released into their new enclosures.
They’ve now had eight possum babies.
You can help the Burramys Project to protect this beautiful tiny creature against the effects of climate change.
