Day 3: Activity 2 - Winter Learning Journey (Wild Eyes)

Winter Learning Journey
Activity 2: After your great visit to the Otorohanga bird house it is time to hop back onto the bus and head towards the Hawke’s Bay – your resting place for the evening. Hawke’s Bay is a beautiful region of New Zealand. It is known for its wineries and gorgeous scenery. When you arrive in Napier, the largest city in the region, you go for a walk through Waitangi Regional Park and notice that many of the leaves on the native trees have been damaged. Curious Kiwi tells you that they were damaged by possums, non-native predators, from Australia. People in New Zealand are working hard to trap and kill these predators. Their goal is to remove all of the possums (and other predators) by 2050. Go to the Predator Free 2050 website’ to read more about their work.

On your blog, tell us whether you agree that New Zealand should be predator free. In your opinion, is it right to kill all of the predators (eg. possums) or should we just leave them alone? On your blog tell us what you think and give us, at least, three reasons why you think this way.
A) I totally Agree that New Zealand has no rights on not freeing the possum, The reason why possums should be freed because (I know they are bad) but sometimes other possums do it for a reason, like humans treat them so badly, but actually, not all of them are bad. They may be protecting their families or angry that human people are killing their people.

  1. Hi Lusia. Great blogpost. I think Possums should be killed because, they are doing a lot of harm to endangered NZ species, and soon they can become extinct. Keep up the great work.
