Wild Things 151
Forests: Mountains to the sea series
- In the 2021 issues of Wild Things we go for an amazing journey through the different environments of Aotearoa. Follow some of our friends to the tippy tops of Aotearoa’s highest mountains, down through the forest and freshwater streams, all the way to the coast. We will meet some of the incredible animals and plants that call these places home and discover some fun activities to do along the way. Look out for the poster in the centre of each magazine, collect all four and they will join together to form one giant poster by the end of the year!
Follow our friend Kākāriki around this issue of Wild Things! Kākāriki takes us through all of the layers of a forest and through three different forest parks across Aotearoa!
Did you know that some of our native trees grow to be 50 meters high?
Lean the answer to Esme and Neve’s riddle, “It’s our tallest native, it’s a podocarp, used for waka and butter boxes. What tree is it?!”
