Local Stories

Ringtail possum

This Ringtail possum came into care at South Branch in early September. Unfortunately, he was cold, dehydrated and lying on his side, barely moving and though our experienced carer didn’t expect him to make it through the night, they did everything possible to make him comfortable and warm. To their surprise, the next morning he was bright and alert and since then has made slow progress and is expected to make a full recovery.
