Spring Possum Tally
Nature Conservation coordinate a yearly possum tally, undertaken in Spring. Taking part in the tally is easy, participants simply choose a site and commit to counting possums on at least 2 nights per week over a 4 week period.
The tally aims to establish a set of suburban monitoring sites where western ringtail possums are counted annually using robust, repeatable methods, to engage the community in citizen science to assist with endangered species conservation and to raise awareness in the community about ringtails and their status
All results are collated and added to the DBCA and ALA database.
The tally has now finished for 2018 but look out for updates on the results of this year’s tally and for news of the 2019 Spring Possum Tally.
