A possum nesting box can offer a safe refuge for possums in urban and rural environments.
Common Brushtail Possums are obligate hollow users – in that every day they return to a safe refuge, typically a natural hollow (referred to as a “den”) or where hollows are lacking, possum boxes.
A lack of natural hollows can bring Brushtail Possums into conflict with their human neighbours, as they seek shelter in roofs or sheds. Supplementing natural hollows with an artificial den or possum box will increase available habitat and is likely to reduce potential conflict.
