Taipa Kids Assist

We were thrilled that the kids from Taipa Area School again helped out in our annual kiwi call count. The annual national kiwi count survey is done right across the country to monitor kiwi population numbers. Whakaangi advocates spent many hours in May and June out between dusk and 10/11pm counting male and female calls. Shelly Dormer from Taipa Area School once again volunteered to come and assist with a bunch of excited and caring kids. Many thanks Taipa Area School! Not only did they learn a lot, have a great kiwi experience - they also made the newspaper! (The results of the survey are just about ready to release - our numbers are UP!)
