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)
Project Numbat is running an art exhibition at Little Creatures Brewery in Fremantle for 4 weeks at the start of 2015 in order to raise funds and awareness for the numbat.

If you would like to have a piece of your artwork displayed at Little Creatures and help Numbats at the same time, please drop us a line and we can provide more information.
