The Otago Peninsula Biodiversity Group is a non-profit, volunteer organization that was registered as a charitable trust in 2010.

Just over $1,000,000 has been raised for possum control, monitoring, and environmental education since 2008.

The OPBG is very grateful to all the organizations and individuals that have provided funding and personal donations for the “possum project” so far. This tremendous support has made great inroads towards our vision of a pest-free Peninsula by 2050.
