Safe Havens for Honey Possums

Please help us give honey possums a safe home – your generosity will help rebuild important natural habitat for our unique honey possums and other native wildlife and give them a safe haven to survive and thrive.

You can help our precious wildlife by donating to the South Coast Environment Fund using one of the secure payment options on our donation page.

 

Honey possums are tiny marsupials which live in the dense native vegetation (Kwongan heathland) found across the south coast of WA. The southwest corner of Western Australia is the only place where tiny honey possums stand a chance of surviving. They are the only marsupial to feed entirely on nectar and pollen and need a habitat rich in flowering plants to give them a year-round supply.

We’re planting corridors of local flowering native plants to connect existing remnant vegetation (it’s called Connectivity Conservation!) which aims to provide honey possums with the diverse food supply they need. In addition, it will provide the perfect home for honey possums, and give other birds and wildlife a safe shelter from feral predators as it provides a secure pathway for native species to move across the landscape as conditions change due to climate variability.
