Estuaries face many challenges, including sediment and marine pest animals. Fortunately, we can all help to solve these problems so we can continue to enjoy being in and around our estuaries.
Monday 5th December hosted an opportunity for Room 1 & 4 learners to head out to Huharua Park (Plummer’s Point) on a field trip to the estuary. Our learners were provided with a fantastic opportunity to learn about estuaries and the many ecosystem services they provide, explore the incredible creatures that live in the estuary and discover the issues estuaries are facing and how they can help.
By working alongside Bay Conservation Alliance, our learners will discover how incredibly unique New Zealand is, gain an insight into many of the conservation challenges in New Zealand, and learn a set of practical conservation skills. We support the well-being of nature everywhere – our forests, streams, wetlands, harbours, estuaries and coastal areas as well as our own backyards.
