Measures have been taken to decrease habitat fragmentation in ski resorts by protecting areas that are yet to be developed (2). In areas where possums and developments occur together, underground tunnels have been constructed to allow males to go about their nomadic lifestyle and therefore come into contact with mates. In Mouth Hotham the plight of male pygmy possums has captured local imagination and the tunnel has been dubbed the 'tunnel of love' (4). A captive breeding programme currently exists in Healesville Sanctuary (4), in order to provide a reservoir of animals for possible reintroduction.
