The brushtail possum is an invasive species

It looks harmless but New Zealand has declared war on this little marsupial. Here is the brushtail possum.

    Animals suffering bcoz of writing ng deeds of humans. It's was humans who introduced them from different ecosystem to the newzealand and now they r killing them in the name of pest who brought them here in first place -_-

    When we were in NZ the locals called the Possums "little Aussie Speed Humps ". In Melbourne they are in plague proportions and destroy any chance of having fruit from our Garden Trees. :)

    What about transporting possums back to where they really came from instead of killing them?

    Kokako and Kereru labels around the wrong way and the 2050 goal is not about NOT introducing new predators it is about wiping them all out entirely.

    Got kokako and kereru mixed up. And yep, possums are a big problem, far too successful in their introduced environment but they aren't the only introduced species that threatens native wildlife here, but control programs are working very well

    How did they get there? Irresponsible humans? Now the possums must pay the price. How sad!

    They may be cute but it's the same as introduced species in Aus like foxes and rabbits, they don't belong and they're destructive. The possums don't go to waste either they make the fluff into wool, it's super soft and not itchy like normal wool.
