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.

 I think possums are not good because they eat 21,00 leaves per night. That means they are dangers for the environments!. They eat precious animals to New Zealand like the native New Zealand bird the Kiwi, But now only that they eat endangered animals in New Zealand like baby chicks of a Kokako.

  1. Hi Freeman
    I also think possums are not good. They are destroying the environment by eating all the trees leaves. The Kokako could also go extinct because the possums eat their eggs and chicks. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hey Freeman
    I didn't know that possums eat 21,00 leaves per night. That is not good. I think they are destroying the environment. I think pests like possums should be remove. Keep up the stunning work Freeman.

  3. Hi Freeman. I agree with you Possums are not good. They are only causing harm. They do so much damage to our native plants and animals. Keep on working hard.

  4. Hey Freeman!

    These are some great reasons why we should get rid of possums! I agree with you - I think they are a threat to our environment and native wildlife and should be gone. I hope they can do it all by 2050, do you think they can?


  5. Hello Freeman, you have gave some great reasons why pests should be killed. One of the worst pests is possums. They are destroying native plants and killing native animals. Well done Freeman!
