Cassandra’s pledge

This is a call to arms for the White Lemuroid Ringtail Possum! With only 5 seen in the past decade, I pledge to save these little guys and raise awareness for many other species. I will climb Victoria's highest peaks, I will live by candlelight for a week or I will ride Melbourne's trains dressed as a tree!

Climb Victoria's 3 highest peaks

Unlike the possum, I prefer the heat and dislike the cold. But I will climb high into the alps, and not just once, but 3 times! I will tackle Victoria's greatest peaks (Mt Bogong, Mt Feathertop and Mt Nelse) highlighting impacts of climate change as I go

I will wear a tree costume on peak hour train

I have a 40 min train ride each day to and from work. Plenty of time to spread my leaves and talk climate change and species loss with the unprepared fellow train riders

Live by candlelight for a week

I will reduce my carbon footprint by using candlelight only, for a week. Earth Hour..phwa..let's take this up a notch!
