The Lost Leadbeaters Possum
25.3cm x 23cm
Mr and Mrs Possum were thought to be gone, sent running by logging, destruction and fire. But some scientists believed that there was a chance that they might come back, despite the crisis so dire. An unforgettably book set in verse, this beautifully illustrated text tells the story of the Victorian state faunal emblem - the Leadbeaters possum. Thought to be extinct, it was rediscovered and inspired great changes in the Victorian highlands that have protected its habitat.
