2016 Western Ringtail Tally - A community Ringtail Possum count

The Western Ringtail Tally is an annual survey of ringtails over a four week period from 18th April to 18th May.  The public are asked to record sightings of ringtails at least two evenings a week (possums may have several nesting places they use) and enter the data onto a Report Form that is submitted for counting.  The Tally event aims to build a reliable set of observation data to improve knowledge about where these endangered ringtails are found and in what numbers.  The Busselton-Dunsborough area is considered to be the last 'stronghold' for the Western Ringtail Possum.  See Get Involved for more.
