About Friends of Leadbeater's Possum
Foundation Members presented with a lifetime award at our 10 year anniversary in 2015 at Healesville Sanctuary
We are the friends…
Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum Inc. was established in 2004 to give a voice to these amazing but elusive forest animals.
Leadbeater’s Possum habitat is impacted by timber harvesting (including salvage logging), bushfires, fire prevention activities (burn-offs and firebreaks) and climate change. We aim to help Leadbeater’s survive in the wild by encouraging public awareness, supporting conservation efforts, providing nest boxes and emergency winter feeding (where appropriate), research programs and effective conservation strategies and policies. We are currently challenging the destruction of habitat by logging through legal action in the Federal Court.
