About New Zealand Possum:
Here in New Zealand, there is a big problem with an ever-growing population of small, cat-sized critters, the non-native possum. Now considered the country’s No.1 public enemy, the beady-eyed brushtail possum was introduced in 1837 to New Zealand to establish a fur trade. Not only are these marsupials dangerous predators to the South Pacific nation’s defensiveless indigenous species, they have also dramatically impacted its delicate ecosystem by multiplying into the millions and eating literally tons of the country’s vegetation each night.
Therefore, the removal of possums from our forests without the use of pesticides encourages the regeneration of New Zealand’s forests and the protection of our native birds.
