Donation to Zoos Victoria Threatened Specied Progam for the Leadbeater's Possum

Our visit coincided with the Leadbeater’s Possum prime breeding season, therefore we were unable to meet them up-close during this completely hands off period.  We were treated to a unique private meeting with Paula whose job is to save these beautiful little possums from extinction while viewing these cute little possums in the Nocturnal House exhibit.

Threatened Species

Anyone planning a visit to Healesville Sanctuary while you stay with us at Botanica Editions, should include a trip to the Nocturnal House exhibit. 

If you are patient, you will see these beautiful little fairies venture out of their nests to zoom around their enclosures showing off their agility, accuracy and speed.
