Day 18 Week 4 Bonus Activity - Summer Learning Journey 2017


Bonus Activity
Sadly, there are a number of animals in the world that are struggling to survive because they cannot find enough food to eat or a safe place to live. Many of these animals are dying and, in some cases, there are very few of them left. They are called ‘endangered animals.’ In New Zealand we have many endangered species, including the kakapo, a shiny green bird that likes to make its nest on the ground. Unfortunately, the nest is really easy to get to and other animals can easily steal the kakapo’s eggs. As a result, very few new kakapo are born. There are 55 kakapos in New Zealand right now.

The New Zealand government is trying to save the kakapo. They are looking for creative ideas. What do you think they could do? On your blog, tell us what you think should be done to save the kakapo. Please be as creative as you can!

  1. Hi Lusia,

    I love the images that you have collected and displayed as a college for this bonus activity. We really do have to do everything that we can to protect the Kakapo. They're very vulnerable and in need of our care and concern. I tihnk that your idea of building a reserve and/or creating space in a zoo to house and protect the birds is a great one.

    Keep up the great work!

    Cheers,
    Rachel :)
