WLJ day 3 Activity 2...

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.

1. I think that we should have all animal predators killed because they have been damaging New Zealand.

2. We should let these predators die or just put them back to where they belong in Australia.

3. Australian Possums should have never came to New Zealand they should be dead today or in Australia.

4. We should kill Australian possums because they cause a lot of damage and could be able to kill us humans.

5. All Animal predators should be dead especially Australian Possums.

  1. Kia ora Hinerangi,

    I think that you made some really interesting points in this blog post. The possums are definitely causing problems for New Zealand farmers and there are a number of people who are very upset about them. I do wonder what might happen if we removed all of the possums.

    Do you think that another pest might emerge and take its place? I wonder...

    Let's hope that that doesn't happen and that we are able to live in a pest-free country!

    Keep up the great work with your blogging :)
