About Us

The Marsupial Society of Australia Inc. is a small organisation, based in Adelaide, South Australia, dedicated to providing information and education regarding keeping and breeding our native Fauna in captivity. Although the Society does not rescue individual animals, it provides support and guidance to those who do.

The Society was formed in 1981, and we have been publishing a monthly Journal / Newsletter ever since. This means that we have a vast information resource that can now be more readily accessible to the world via the internet.

We invite you to take a look around this website. We trust you will find it informative, interesting and useful. Thank you for your time and support!

As the Marsupial Society is a South Australian based organisation, many of the articles on this website reflect the wildlife laws in this State.   One of these laws that often causes some concern is that it is illegal to release any hand-raised native fauna back to the wild.  Details of the reasoning behind this issue may be found here http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/biodiversity/faunapermits/rescue.html
