This young honey possum is being given a drink of honey dissolved in water to send it on its way after being captured in a pitfall trap on Greening Australia’s Nowanup property. The energy boost will help it find shelter for the day as these animals are mainly nocturnal. The trapping was undertaken by Bush Heritage’s Angela Sanders as part of Nowanup School Week.
