Facts about the New Zealand Brushtail Possum

The New Zealand Brushtail Possum is a medium sized marsupial that was introduced into New Zealand from Australia during the mid 1800's. It is from a completely different family to that of the North American Opossum, and it's fur quality is similar to mink. With no natural predators, numbers exploded to approximately 70 million in the 1980s. Possums currently eat about 20,000 tons of native vegetation each night. In addition to this they compete directly with native birds for food and they also eat birds eggs, chicks and insects. Their insatiable appetite threatens the survival of many of our native plants, insects and birds, including our national bird the kiwi.

The Department of Conservation spends many millions of dollars each year on trapping and controversial poisoning campaigns in attempts to control the pest. In addition, the possum fur industry helps to keep the possum numbers down. Current research shows that due to twenty five years of control, possum numbers have dropped to approximately 40 million. However, with New Zealand's favourable climatic conditions possums are able to breed twice a year and numbers could rapidly increase once again.

Mi Woollies believes in a market solution to the possum problem. Efforts to reduce the millions of possums in New Zealand’s forests have been boosted by companies that market possum fur. So, by choosing to wear our luxurious Possum Wool knitwear, or one of our unique Possum fur products, you are helping to preserve the fragile and beautiful New Zealand environment.
