Help us find a name for our new furry friend! A student from Bunbury Regional College found this possum that had met with an unfortunate end to its life. The student recently participated in a possum school incursion with GeoCatch project officer Nicole Lincoln and wanted to help with continuing possum education for others. The student arranged with GeoCatch to deliver the possum to professional taxidermist Mark Doulton from Natures Expression for mounting and preservation.Mark commented that the possum was in remarkable condition, making it an ideal candidate for preservation. “I had to replace a small area of fur on her back that had come away. Other than that, she was in great condition,” said Mark.The possum will now become part of GeoCatch’s education programs at local schools and throughout the community. “Our furry friend has a bright future in helping educate students and the community on the importance of the critically endangered western ringtail possum” said Nicole Lincoln from GeoCatch. If you would like to propose a name for our possum, lodge it in the comments section below. The winning name chosen will receive a soft possum toy and a hand made possum box from Busselton Men’s Shed.#Markdoulton#naturesexpression #petsawaypossumplay#busseltonmensshed #petsawaypossumsplay #busselton #westernringtailpossum #possums #geocatch #possum #nativeaustraliananimals #wildlife #criticallyendangered #dunsborough #ringtailpossum ...

It's #WaterbirdWednesday!Our very own Vasse Wonnerup wetlands near Busselton are part of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway, one of nine major migratory bird flyways in the world.Each year in summer, hundreds of thousands of migratory birds begin to arrive in WA’s north and south west. This includes species like plovers, sandpipers, stints, curlews and snipes.These birds make round trip migrations of up to 26,000 km per year between their summer breeding grounds in the northern hemisphere and their feeding areas in the south.Over the next few months we will bring you a snapshot of the amazing migratory shorebirds that visit us at the Vasse Wonnerup wetlands.Pictured is the Red-necked stint at Vasse Wonnerup; a tiny migratory wader that travels all the way from Siberia to re-fuel at out local wetlands.
