The ever so cute, critically endangered Pygmy-Possum will be waking up from hibernation this year with a severe lack of food. The migration of Bogong Moths, the primary source of food for Pygmy-Possums, is being disrupted as the moths, distracted by the lights, are getting lost across Canberra and NSW.
We were delighted to be asked by Zoos Victoria to create this animation to encourage those in the flight path of the Bogong Moths to switch off their lights at night and to raise awareness about the Pygmy-Possum’s situation.
