The Victorian faunal emblem Leadbeater’s Possum is critically endangered. Their greatest threat is clearfell logging for wood pulp to make paper. They rely on old trees with hollows to nest in and a connected understory to forage in.
The Toolangi Sculpture trail is not dense enough for them so the artist has planted Acacia species that they feed on and hand woven many metres of rope from shredded office paper in a futile attempt to restore horizontal connectivity.
