Endangered Animal

Eastern Pygmy Possums are nocturnal, tree-dwelling marsupials. They are agile climbers with tails capable of curling and gripping.

They eat mostly pollen and nectar from banksias, eucalypts and understorey plants and insects, seeds and fruit.

The Northern Beaches has the largest population of Pygmy Possums in Sydney outside of national parks.
