The Possum... The New Zealand brushtail possum was first introduced from Australia in 1858. It is a nocturnal marsupial the size of a large cat with soft luxurious fur. The possum population increased rapidly throughout New Zealand and today totals between 70 and 90 million.
Possums cause considerable ecological damage to our forests and native birds including our national icon the Kiwi bird. The New Zealand government is committed to reducing the possum population in New Zealand and any commercial use of the pest is encouraged.
