A conservation tale of the Gilbert’s Potoroo – Australia’s rarest mammal.

When a bushfire destroys Potoroo’s home, he becomes one of the last surviving Gilbert’s Potoroos at Two Peoples Bay in Western Australia. Frightened, hurt and alone, Potoroo needs a new home – somewhere safe from predators and with plenty of his favourite food. Luckily, a team of conservationists know where Potoroo can go to be safe.

One Potoroo: A Story of Survival is a beautifully illustrated book about the world’s most endangered marsupial, the Gilbert’s Potoroo, and the conservation work that has kept this unique Australian alive.
