KCC Waikato had a great trip to Mahoenui Giant Wētā Scientific Reserve. Here are some of the pictures taken during the visit. A big thank you to Erana and Antoinette at DoC Te Kuiti for hosting us.
I scanned the bush ahead, my eyes searching for anything that might be the answer. My mum, sister, her friend and I were on a Tauranga KCC un-nature trail – which means we have to find things that don’t belong in the bush. So far we had found coat hangers, buckets, forks, pegs, and other […]
This friendly guy had been hanging around. We wondered if he might land on us, he did four times! It was amazing. We decided to name it Charcoal. From Samuel and Sylvie, KCC members, Nelson.
Whanganui KCC members Calexico and Lola send in these pictures and photographs to us via email. They show just some of the great activities happening within this branch. Ka mau te wehi! (Awesome) Thanks for sharing with us Whanganui KCC. We look forward to hearing from you again soon. What great things have you been […]
Lulu (aged 10) sent in an important email this week… My name is Lulu, and I am 10 years old. In the weekend my friend Annie, my sister Nico, and I did some fundraising for the kākāpō. We picked plums from our tree and baked muffins, and designed a poster. We collected $111 in 2 […]
Olive (aged 8) sent in this great story about saving, caring for, and releasing a young starling during the summer holidays… In the holidays I heard my cat Daisy catch a starling fledgling. It was half dead. I locked Daisy in the bathroom while me, Heath, and Ramona surrounded the starling. After half an hour Mum […]
KCC member Esther and her dad spent some time trying out our red cabbage indicator experiment. Here’s how they got on… The purple colour is spectacular! But then the eventual colour of the paper is quite light, so when we were first looking at our water samples we had some doubt about whether or not […]
Ben from Auckland sent in this wonderful story about a little blue penguin named Fred who goes on an adventure in the ocean. We loved it so much we asked Giselle Clarkson to turn it into a comic, which you can read in the latest issue of our Wild Things Magazine. Read all three chapters of Ben’s […]
Henderson Valley School has been working on a mural about the Māui’s dolphin because it is nearly extinct. The idea for a mural happened about a year ago when Paolo Maladondo, who is one of the school parents, wanted to make a mural out of plastic bottle tops. This would mean the bottle tops wouldn’t […]
KCC member Finn has a pretty amazing back yard. Read his report on who came to visit. In January I helped welcome 100 Fairy Prion chicks to Mana Island. As part of my learning at home, I went up to the southern end of the island with my Dad (Jeff Hall) who is the ranger […]
