Soft Release Trailer

Roughly 100 orphaned brushtail possums come into care each year. We have a soft release program whereby we source property owners who are willing to allow us to park a trailer on their property for a three week period. We however, only have one release trailer, built by one of our members. We would like to have a 2nd trailer built to cope with the amount of orphans that need releasing. These trailers consist of a 6x4m trailer base, with a purpose built cage attached to the base. The cage is detachable.
