In Jan­uary, AUS­TRALIAN GEO­GRAPHIC con­trib­u­tor Alas­dair McGre­gor made the case for wel­com­ing pos­sums into our back­yards. Here’s what you had to say:

ALI­SON NISBETT

Fi­nally! So great to read a pos­i­tive ar­ti­cle about ur­ban pos­sums. I adore my res­i­dent brushie and she is wel­come to eat what­ever takes her fancy in my gar­den.

TRISY SEENEY

Re­mem­ber that hu­mans are tak­ing over their habi­tat, not the other way round. We have to share with them.

KAREN JENSEN

We had a pos­sum that would sleep on the win­dowsill be­hind the ivy. It was such a priv­i­lege to have it there that we made it a pos­sum box.

BRIAN AR­MOUR

Any pos­sum that vis­its my deck at night gets two Granny Smiths.

AN­NEMARIE MAN­NERS

I have pos­sums in my back­yard and feel quite priv­i­leged to share my yard with them.
