A visit to the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary in Nelson
We have been studying our class bird the Kea. We have found out that the Kea is an endangered New Zealand Native bird. We went to the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary to see all the different things that we can do to help rid the New Zealand bush of pests like rats, stoats, possums and weasels that are killing our native birds, their babies and eating the food that the birds need. We are looking forward to seeing kiwi and tuatara being able to live in the bush once again as well as seeing and hearing increasing numbers of tui, piwakawaka and kereru once the pests have gone.
