Wind is energy – we can turn it into elec­tric­ity.

New Zealand is a windy place be­cause it is closely sur­rounded by sea.

Some plants use wind to spread their seeds.

Some plants need wind for pol­li­na­tion. Un­like plants pol­li­nated by birds or in­sects, they have smaller flow­ers with no scent or nec­tar, but gazil­lions of tiny pollen grains (which make us sneeze!) Their flower parts are de­signed to catch pollen float­ing past in the breeze.

Most plants, es­pe­cially young seedlings, need shel­ter from strong wind.
