Many native mammals live in the Sydney area. While many of them are now restricted to isolated areas on the fringes of the metropolitan region, others have adapted to living, with humans, in an urban environment, although they still face many challenges.
The most common species we encounter are:
Possums & Gliders
Common Ringtail Possum
Flying Foxes & Micro Bats
Grey-headed Flying Fox
Eastern Grey Kangaroo
Western Red Kangaroo
Bandicoots, Echidnas & Small Mammals
Hairy Nosed Wombat

We made it with the help of our supporters
To raise much needed funds for an enclosure for the rehabilitation of kangaroos and wallabies Sydney Wildlife took part in a special Global Giving fund-raising challenge during the month of April. With help from our supporters we met the challenge.
