Visit Project Numbat at Beaufort Street Art Markets

Project Numbat for the first time will be attending the Beaufort Street Art Markets in Mt Lawley this Sunday from 9am – 1pm.

Our stall will showcase the fine and unique numbat items we have for sale – all made by WA artists and some of which don’t appear on our website. We also have canvas art for sale featuring the numbat of course. So if you want to see these items up close and are looking for a distinctive gift, then  please come by and don’t forget to say hi.

Project Numbat is excited to attend this monthly event as art is another way of raising numbat awareness amongst our community.

Calling for Collars!

Project Numbat needs your help to raise enough funds for 25 radio tracking collars (that’s $6,250!) by the end of the year to help determine the survival of released Numbats into the wild. We would love for you to get involved and join our ‘Call for Collars Campaign’ 2015. 

Whether you are a generous individual, keen sports team, a fun social group or even a class of students, we ask you to put your thinking caps on and host your own fundraising event to help us reach our target. 

Simply head to our Fundraising Page and set up your event page to share your story and raise valuable funds for these Numbats in need!

Well that was a whirlwind of a month! The artworks have been taken off the wall and packaged up to be sent to their new homes. 

Thank you so much to everyone who helped out, all of the amazing artists, everyone who came to check out the exhibition and Little Creatures for a brilliant space. I think the whole event really amazed us with how well received it was and the huge turn out on the opening night. Most of the art works have been sold, there are a few that are still available, so if you feel you missed out on a piece you had your eye on, please contact us. 

Once again, thank you to everyone, hopefully now everyone can tell their Numbats from their Wombats!

The coolest new accessory- Numbat radio collars

Wild or captive born Numbats are fitted with radio collars each year by the Department of Parks and Wildlife to track their movements, gain important information on their dispersal in their habitat and their survival.

In November and December 2014, DEC will be fitting a number of Numbats with radio-collars. The Numbats will either by wild caught or bred at Perth Zoo for release.

We are giving you the opportunity to be a part of this important work by contributing to the cost of the radio-collars. Each collar costs $250 and for your contribution you will receive a certificate with:

• a photo of the collared Numbat

• its name

• date of birth (if known)

• sex

• weight

• location
