you can take part in a Conservation Kids NZ-run ‘‘Pest Special’’, which offers conservation-focused fun and games for the kids. Contact Siobain on email@example.com to register before October 7.
DOC is running a Meet the Kiwi competition. To enter the draw, participants must visit all three Toyota Kiwi Guardians sites, at Mill Flat, Taylor River and Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary, and provide photographic proof of the visits. There are one of two chances to meet a rowi kiwi and have a chat to the kiwi team. The competition is open now and runs through to October 16.
The guardian sites provide the family with some fun activities to do, plus by visiting the sites, kids can claim a Toyota Kiwi Guardians medal.
