Beyond Orokonui at Blueskin on Show

We had a spectacular day on Sunday at the Blueskin On Show (A&P show in Waitati).  Our Project Manager and some of our Trustees were there to talk about the different projects going on.  Tasha came along to talk about her Masters research at Mapoutahi.  It was great to be located between Orokonui Ecosanctuary and Ospri, plenty of commonalities and shared interests (see photo of Tasha and Elton from Orokonui at our stall).  

We had 19 possums in total for the "Great Possum Weigh-in".  The heaviest possum came in at 3.65kg.  Thanks to Ospri for the Oil Skin as first prize and to Seriously Twisted for the possum and merino fur socks.  Also thanks to Seriously Twisted for loaning us the beautiful knitted possum skin panel (one section of a blanket) and the scarf - it was great to show off what can be created from their beautiful fur.
