Meet Posey – Our first Ambassador Animal
Posey the possum is our first Ambassador Animal. When she was found she was dehydrated and unable to move on her own. Her wounds were consistent with a predator grabbing her by the head and shaking her, causing neurological damage. Under the expert care of Janice Beglau-Taylor our possum rehabilitator, she has returned to full health except for a persistent tendency to randomly fall over. Unfortunately, that would make her vulnerable in the wild, but “fortunately” her rescue and rehabilitation opened up a new career opportunity as an Ambassador Animal. Posey has recently been licensed to be an educational member of our team, helping people to meet, experience and learn about wildlife in person.
