Another new arrival to end the summer.
Meet the newest member of the long-nosed potoroo family. Found in South and Eastern Australia, these gorgeous little marsupials will only have one baby per year and we are thrilled it's come along.
Listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, this is another proud moment for the conservation efforts of the Trust.
When it was born, this little one would have been blind and naked, and no bigger than a five pence piece! It would have swiftly taken up residence in mums marsupial pouch and spent at least 4 months nursing and growing.
Now when you visit the Trust you will see it hopping around, bouncing, digging and enjoying insect treats! Charles Darwin described the long-nosed potoroo as "an animal as big as a rabbit, but with the figure of a kangaroo" and boy can they jump!
