Join the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Resort Management environmen­tal services team on September 15 at 6.30pm.

It will be an online webinar to learn about the importance of Bogong Moths and their role in the conservati­on of the incredibly cute and endangered Mountain Pygmy Possum population.

Special guest presenter will be Marissa Parrott from Zoos Victoria.

They will also be joining with our neighbouri­ng Alpine Resort Management environmen­tal services teams of Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Mt Baw Baw and their communitie­s.

There will be an opportunit­y to participat­e in a Q&A session at the end of the presentati­on.

Those wishing to attend must register in advance online to receive their unique webinar login link.

On the night they will also be asking as many of you to turn off your lights between 6.30pm and 6.45pm.

They said Lights off for the Moths is about the best and easiest thing you can do to help the Bogong Moths make their way to the Mountain Pygmy Possums which is to turn off all your unnecessar­y outside lights at the end of winter and into the spring.
