"In the central desert of Australia north of Alice, Warla, a tiny shy marla sat under a bush. What was that? Danger!"
The Marla is a small nocturnal marsupial that inhabits the spinifex and hummock grasslands of the central desert. The numbers of Mala have been in decline since the 1990's due to habitat destruction and predation.
The shy Marla tells the true story of how the Warlpiri people rescued the Marla and took them to safety where they now live in a protected environment.
Foreword written by Boori Pryor Written in consultation with the Warlpiri community Opportunities for use across the curriculum. The book includes an information page that gives factual context
