Locally extinct brushtail possums reintroduced in Western Australia


Last month, 39 brushtail possums were reintroduced to the Mount Gibson Wildlife Sanctuary in Western Australia, an area where they have been locally extinct since the early twentieth century. Of these, 19 were released outside of the sanctuary’s predator-proof fence, which surrounds a 7,800-hectare area that is free of foxes feral cats within the wider 132,000-hectare sanctuary.
