NATURE EDUCATION PROGRAMME
Launching in May 2019, we are excited to invite schools to book into our new nature education programme.
What can schools expect?
Our programme provides fully facilitated hands-on experiential conservation education. Students 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. Activities and learnings include bird banding and ID, reptile and insect monitoring, rongoa, biosecurity challenges including issues like kauri dieback, and of course the huge challenge of pest management.
We are currently operating at two sites – Aongatete in the Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park near Katikati, and Otanewainuku Forest between Te Puke and Oropi.
