Victoria's Endangered State Faunal Emblem!

Leadbeater's Possum is Victoria's State Faunal emblem. An endangered species with both State and National Recovery Programs in place. Endemic to Victoria, they exist nowhere else but the Central Highlands forests, Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve and alpine areas between Lake Mountain & Mt. Baw Baw.

Population estimates prior to the 2009 bushfires were around 2,000-2,500 individuals, post-fire estimates are <1,000. Approximately 40-50% of their prime habitat was lost in the fires.

Friends of the Leadbeater's Possum Inc

We are Friends of Leadbeater's Possum Inc. Established in 2004 to give a voice to these amazing but elusive forest animals. Leadbeater's Possum habitat has many impacts ranging from timber harvesting (including salvage logging) to bushfire and bushfire prevention methods like fuel breaks and fuel reduction burning.

Together we hope to be able to help Leadbeater's survive in the wild by encouraging conservation efforts, research programs and effective conservation strategies and policies.

Joining as a member is a great way to support our group! The more members we have the more weight we have when lobbying for the survival of Leadbeater's Possum.
