Tiny Possum and the Migrating Moths
Premier’s Reading Challenge lists: Queensland (2-3), South Australia (R-2), NSW (3-4)
High in the Australian Alps, Possum needs to find enough food and shelter to survive the harsh alpine winter. She will spend months hibernating under a blanket of snow. Will she last through the year to successfully raise a new family?
The mountain pygmy-possum is small in size but huge in appeal! Once thought to be extinct, there are now around 2500 of these tiny survivors in the wild. They need snow and bogong moths to survive, and the support of great conservation work.
