Possum

Baby Ringtail Possum
Baby Ringtail Possum

Recently we visited a wildlife carer and had a personal encounter with orphaned possums. When larger and taught to fend for themselves they will be reintroduced to the wild.

Sadly land clearing and  removal of trees, as well giving over country to mining does not augur well for their future. What was heartening was to meet up with people who care and believe they can make a difference.

Hi!

My hope is that a toy like this will encourage a new generation to care more responsibly.

  1. What wonderful work is done by people helping our wildlife. I love the ringtail possum although we don’t have any here….. only the more common possum.
