How the mountain pygmy-possum can be saved

The critically endangered mountain pygmy-possum could have its survival chances boosted if scientists succeed in moving the tiny animal from its alpine habitat to a warmer, lowland forest environment, a UNSW Sydney study suggests. If successful the project, led by UNSW researchers Professor Mike Archer and Dr Hayley Bates, could provide a template for saving other similarly threatened animals worldwide.
