This event is sold out however we have a waitlist available.
If you've booked but can no longer make it, please let us know.

Hear stories from experts in their fields about possums - common and endangered, ancient and introduced. From living in their habitats - both urban and wild, how they are cared for and not cared for by humans, how they are studied, and how we tell their stories onstage!

This event is for the whole family and will be facilitated by Lily (11) and Xanthe (11), who are both part of the TMAG Young People’s Reference Panel. 
Belinda Bauer | Collections Manager, Vertebrates, TMAG
