The Eastern Bettong is a small, kangaroo-like marsupial.
Its pre-European range included eastern Tasmania and a broad coastal strip from south-east Queensland to south-east SA
While the mainland population became extinct in the 1920s, the Tasmanian population has remained secure,
One concern is that most of the bettongs are found on private land, with only two groups found within reserves.
Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary ACT have a successful breeding.

Description

General information about our animals

All our Puppets and toys are hand made from materials made in an environmentally sustainable.
All runoff from dyes used is contained and disposed of in an ecologically safe way.   All materials are fire-resistant and have been tested under a flame.

All patterns are drawn by hand first and then shaped into the three-dimensional shape that is meticulously worked with by producing many samples until the spirit of the animal is revealed and comes to life when it is used. (by the puppeteer!)
We deliberately use old methods of cutting the material by a small hand machine then sewn by hand and on machines both in Nanjing and In Melbourne.
This is achieved by a small group of women.

( see our History to see the development of Secret Gully puppets and Endangered Animals Australia)
