10 Trees, 10 Tree Challenges
How many of these challenges can you do over our Be With a Tree celebration (31 May – 9 June)?
Fox Landfill Story Writing Competition
Write or draw an imaginative story that could be published in Wild Things about the experience of Lion and Barbie during the recent Fox River Landfill Disaster. It needs to create awareness about Climate Change, as there are 100s of landfills around NZ at risk of coastal or river erosion with all the extreme weather starting to happen. We also have 5 KCC memberships to give away to families living on the West Coast!
Ask your MPs to support the Zero Carbon Bill!
Getting a strong Zero Carbon Bill (ZCB) passed in Parliament this year is a priority! It is the very best way for us to help our animals, plants, and places as they face the impacts of climate change.
Waste Minimisation Challenge
Help develop Wild Things magazine
We want Wild Things to keep being the coolest conservation magazine around. Show us what you want to see more of (and less of) in your magazine in the future.
How to get involved:
- Look at the issues of Wild Things you have at home, and/or school. Make a note of the things you most like to read, look at, and do.
- Use your research to “mock up” your own page or pages of Wild Things (or if you’re really keen, make a whole magazine!). You could draw and write this by hand, make a collage, or do it on the computer.
- Send your mahi in via firstname.lastname@example.org. You can post the original to KCC Challenges, P.O. Box 631, Wellington, 6140 too.
We’ll will share your work via the KCC blog (kcc.org.nz/blog), and use your ideas to start making changes to Wild Things.
Congratulations to Frankie and Lucy who won our Grand Prize – accommodation for up to six people at Forest & Bird’s Ruapehu Lodge!
This is Tiki Tim the Taniwha, created by KCC Northland member Moana. He will be speaking up around the issue of climate change on behalf of KCC going forward.
