Pygmy Possums: Burramyidae - Conservation Status

threat affects bogong considered

The mountain pygmy possum is considered Endangered because of the very limited area (only two places in Victoria, Australia) in which it lives. Disturbances to its habitat are considered the most important threat. A natural threat is the annual change in rainfall. The amount of rain affects the size of the Bogong moth population—this in turn affects the amount of food that is available for the mountain pygmy possum, which gorges on Bogong moths almost exclusively during the summer months.
