Possum Boxes

Create homes for possums.

Possum boxes provide important refuges for Western Ringtail Possums, as mature trees decline in urban areas.

These artificial nests can be used as an alternative to a typical possum ‘drey’, providing a safe and cosy place for possums to sleep during the day.

We have worked with local schools to install possum boxes in trees on school grounds. Students can be engaged in the construction, installation and monitoring of possum boxes. This provides a valuable and rewarding experience for students while teaching them about wildlife conservation.

If you would like support to install possum or other wildlife boxes at your school, please contact us.
