Today me and my brother went to Waitangi and found some Penguin houses near a beach. Little Blue Penguins/ Korora are the world’s smallest penguin at 25cm high. They can dive to a depth of 70 metres. They spend most of the day fishing at sea, coming ashore at dusk to roost. They are native […]
My neighbour Mrs. Hill gave me a bucket of tadpoles. The tadpoles were like 3 cm fat. I had been waiting a little while but they came. We set up a black tub with part of an old rabbit cage on top so the cats couldn’t get in. I went to the farm to get […]
We went to Zealandia. When we got there the water in the lower dam was only 4 or 5 meters deep. They are emptying it because of the perch (kokopu). Perch are not a New Zealand species of fish and they are eating the very tiny animals which were supposed to be eating the algae, […]

Me and my grandma went to the Brook Sanctuary on Saturday for a KCC activity. We all gathered around at the house as Katrina took the roll. Then Rick showed us some wetas his son had caught in some jars. We had some time to explore the house and press the buttons with bird calls. […]
On Saturday, 16th of September, my family and I visited Brook Sanctuary with the Nelson Tasman Kiwi Conservation Club. It was our first time visiting and I’d reckon we will go back there again! I learned new things like how Kōtukutuku – a red velvety purple tree fuchsia flower- would sometimes make birds (commonly Bellbirds) heads go purple when […]
