Opossum Awareness & Advocacy (OPAA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Vermont.\ \Our primary mission is to spread awareness about opossums'​ many attributes, including the fact they kill ticks and mice that carry Lyme and other infectious diseases, and in doing so to improve the public's regard and treatment of this very undervalued marsupial. \\Our formation in May 2017 was motivated by the belief that opossums may well be one of the most underestimated and misunderstood mammals in North America. It is not uncommon to hear people slurring opossums and treating them unkindly - calling them dirty rats and intentionally injuring them - when in fact, opossums are clean, industrious marsupials that with few exceptions help humans far more than they cause harm.\​\Since we began, more than 37 million people have seen our initial 'Hello, my name is opossum!'​ Facebook post and it's been shared more than 690,000 times. We currently have 128,000+ Facebook followers and have received dozens of emails from USA and Canada, and some from as far away as South Africa and Brazil. \\We started out with no funds, just an idea and the hope that people would be ready to listen. We've been blown away by people's reactions and how many are receptive to learn more about our opossum friends. \\Even if only a quarter of the people who have seen our initial Facebook post tell one friend, we estimate that we have potentially saved thousands of opossums from needless death and cruelty.
