PUBLIC PRESENTATION CHANGED TO:

'The Secret Life of Northern Bettongs'

A presentation by Olive Needham and Wise Lum at 7:30pm Thurs April 8th-Malanda Hotel Ballroom

Northern bettongs are one of the most endangered mammal species in Australia. Much about their behaviours are a mystery to us and there's only so much that can be observed from camera traps and other survey methods. Wildlife carers have a unique opportunity to understand animals in much more intimate details than the average naturalist. Here we look at some of the previously undocumented and wonderful behaviours (from seed caching to how bettongs gather nesting materials and mark their territories) observed in two Northern bettongs, 'Nortong' and 'Norrie' while they were in care.
