Day 3 Activity 2

Activity 2: After your great visit to the Otorohanga bird house it is time to hop back onto the bus and head towards the Hawke’s Bay – your resting place for the evening. Hawke’s Bay is a beautiful region of New Zealand. It is known for its wineries and gorgeous scenery. When you arrive in Napier, the largest city in the region, you go for a walk through Waitangi Regional Park and notice that many of the leaves on the native trees have been damaged. Curious Kiwi tells you that they were damaged by possums, non-native predators, from Australia. People in New Zealand are working hard to trap and kill these predators. Their goal is to remove all of the possums (and other predators) by 2050. Go to the Predator Free 2050 website’ to read more about their work.On your blog, tell us whether you agree that New Zealand should be predator free. In your opinion, is it right to kill all of the predators (eg. possums) or should we just leave them alone? On your blog tell us what you think and give us, at least, three reasons why you think this way.
Once you have finished your blog post, it is time to relax for the evening. You and your friends have a nice dinner and then head to bed. You are just about to fall asleep when you hear something moving around outside your hotel. It sounds like a large bird. Maybe it’s a Moa…
To learn more about the Moa bird go to the bonus activity for today!
I Think We Should Get Rid Of Predators Because They Are So Annoying. I also Think They Should Be Predator Free Because I want More Native Animal Then Other Animals.I also Think They should go because they would eat all the native birds.

  1. Kia ora Ana,

    It is great to see that you've completed this activity. It is a tricky one as it requires everyone to think really carefully about a really complicated issue. I must admit that I am very worried about the health and well-being of our native animals. There do appear to be a number of predators at large in New Zealand, many of whom are not native to the country, who are attacking our native species. I agree that we have to do something to preserve and protect the animals and trees that are unique to NZ.

    Keep up the great work with your blogging, Ana. I'm looking forward to reading your next post already!
