Goodnature automatic humane possum trap





Following the development of their self-resetting trap technology, first applied to the Henry v9 automatic stoat and rat trap, Wellington-based industrial design team Goodnature moved their focus to New Zealand’s most ecologically harmful pest – the possum. Developed with the support of the Department of Conservation (DOC), Goodnature’s possum trap uses their unique technology of compressed carbon dioxide to automatically reset itself up to 12 times. This means the trapping is less labour-intensive and more cost-effective than single-action traps, which have to be reset manually.
