Possum Box Installation
- Published: Thursday, 29 June 2017 03:12
Recently Arbor Guy joined forces with the Geographe Catchment Council to help the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum. GeoCatch now provides Arbor Guy with free possum boxes and if a client fits criteria and would like to have a box installed, we do so free of charge.
To promote this new partnership, Arbor Guy installed two possum boxes at the Vasse Primary School with a kindy and pre-primary class eagerly watching on. Guy Badger (Director of Arbor Guy) and Brett Moir (Works Manager) talked about their work as Arborist's and then climbed a native peppermint tree (Agonis flexuosa) to install the boxes. Jenelle Schult from GeoCatch gave a great presentation about the endangered possum and talked about the importance of helping preserve the population of possums in Busselton.
