An ecological clip for an ecological tragedy. Imported from Australia 150 years ago, the opossum is destroying the forests of Aotearoa/ New Zealand and ravaging the habitat of many protected species (5 opossums eat as much as one sheep, so add 60 million opossums to 50 million sheep and you get an idea of the scale of the problem!). In honour of Tane, Maori God of the forest, a cloak called “Tane’s Revenge” was made from over a hundred opossum skins.
