Winter Learning Journey - Day 3 Activity 2

For this activity I had to read about how New Zealand are working hard to trap and kill these predators. I have form an opinon and give some reasons why.

1. The pests damage native trees.
2.People are signing up to have a trap in their back yard and to look after that trap.
3.They are eating the eggs and young and attack the adults.
4.They have diseases that can spread to other animals.
5.Stoats attack defenceless young kiwi and contribute to the continuing decline of mainland kiwi populations.


  1. Hi Jay-don. I agree with you we should kill these pests. They are doing a lot of damage to native plants and animals. Keep up the fabulous work.

  2. Hi Jay-Don
    I totally agree with you, we should kill pests like possums. They could make native animals like the Kokako extinct by eating their chicks and eggs. Keep up the superb work.

  3. Hey Jay-don!

    It look like you have done some extra research on this issue! I an interested by your second point... That's quite cool! Where did you find that information from?

    Nicky :)

  4. Hello Jay-Don, I agree with you. Pests can possibly make our native animals extinct if they continue to kill them. You are right. They do have diseases and it can be spread to other animals. Keep on working hard.

  5. Hey Jay-don
    It's good to see you have learnt about pests and what people are doing to protect our native species. Another threat is possums beacuase they eat the same food as our native animals. Good job!

  6. Hi Jay-don,
    I really the five things that you have did. Those are really great. Well Done!
