Using coconuts and leaves for camouflage, Noble Park Girl Guides have fashioned some comfy new homes for possums.

The group presented their self-made accommodations to Helping Hands Wildlife Rescue volunteer Maree Binaisse on 4 July.

The girls had been inspired by the need to overcome possums’ habitat loss due to local development, leader Cathy O’Brien said.

The project was also captured on a Girls Guide short film showing what a difference their members make to the world.

The film is a collaboration between the State Government, New Mac Video Agency and Girl Guides Victoria.
