Posie was found as a baby opossum in the spring of 2017. She had multiple head wounds and was treated by a veterinarian; after months of treatment, the vet found that Posie had permanent neurologic issues, including a head tilt and problems with her balance. Posie came to the Wildlife Center to join the team of education ambassadors who travel around the state teaching others about wildlife and the environment. She became an official member of the team in the fall of 2017.
