If you've had an encounter with Possums we'd appreciate contact with you about this if possible. We're studying sustainability this term and one of the themes that were looking at is conservation.
Were looking for anyone from New Zealand or elsewhere for that matter, who've had experiences with Possums, at home, on the farm or at school even. If you have could you please leave a comment to us, if you've got pictures or other media forms, even better!
In New Zealand they're a substantial pest, with between 30 and 70 million in the country, estimated to be eating 9 million tonnes of vegetation a night! You can check out more about Possums by reading here.
