A Dunbavin Butcher Esq Director Fisheries and Wildlife ,Vic

Dear Mr Butcher

Should your Department see fit I would like secure permission to take one (1) pair of Leadbeater's possum for purposes of study. In exchange we are able to offer a pair of Squirrel Gliders (Petaurus norfolcensis) or two of Smithopsis larapinta or even a pair of Brindled Bandicoots (Isoodon macrourus.

With best wishes

Yours sincerely

David Fleay
