Western Ringtail Possum

Also critically endangered, the Western Ringtail Possum.Aren’t I beautiful?

Once native to the area, this lovely marsupial was destroyed by predators, mostly foxes.

They have been re-introduced into the Yalgorup National Park and are surviving extremely well because foxes and other ferals have been well controlled in the park.

Any increase in the local human population would bring with it habitat loss and an increase in feral animals such as cats.

They are classified as “HIGHLY ENDANGERED”
