Save the Leadbeater's possum from extinction

Victoria's faunal emblem; the critically endangered Leadbeater's possum, is going extinct due to wildfires and pulp logging. Since 1998, the tiny possums population has declined by 80% from 5000 to a meagre 1000 left in the wild today. The Victorian government logs the habitat of the Leadbeater's possum and sells it to Nippon owned Australian Paper to make Reflex office papers. This is a cruel and barbaric practice. Nippon/Australian Paper must stop buying wood fibre from endangered species habitat now. Details here
