This morning Fiordland College Y10 students started making Bioramas of stream ecosystems... We are looking forward to see these completed! Fiordland College Y10 Science / Freshwater Study is in its fifth year running. A fantastic effort from all involved. The students will also be heading off into the Kepler to investigate one of the streams... 😉
There are not too many penguins in the Kepler....but they are awesome birds (that act like fish?) Well worth checking out.
Well Done to Gwylam Macmillan Armstrong who was awarded the Environmental Achiever at the Mararoa School prize giving last month. Gwylam is part of the KRTK Leadership Team, is often found at the KRTK events and recently received a scholarship to attend the Kea Conservation Workshop.

😃 ...and please share the 'Don't feed the kea' song below!
Also had a peek at what Southern Adventurers & Friends have been up to recently... These experiences are priceless, the children's enthusiasm is contagious... and the local teachers and educators are simply phenomenal! 😉
Just had a peek at what Nature Discovery kids have been up to.... Wonderful! That tree is still a landmark for the 12 year old college students that were climbing it eight years ago 😉
This afternoon we celebrated the last of Te Anau Library and Kids Restore the Kepler creative sessions for 2019 making simple, but effective, Christmas decorations. Meri Kirihimete koutou mā!
Te Anau Library and Kids Restore the Kepler beautiful artwork is now at Distinction Hotel & Villas, in Te Anau, for the imminent Kea Summit, which kicks off tomorrow morning. Aren't these amazing?! A big thank you to all the wonderful artists that contributed their artwork, to Librarian Sarah Hickson for helping setting up the display boards and to Ranger Crystal Brindle for helping transporting them to DHV.
Check out what Te Anau School Room 11 students have made last week. We had a lot of fun learning about leaf margin types. Lots of great language opportunities for the children, like 'wavy margin' and 'toothed margin' 😉 Room 11 are exploring 'lines' in Art, and the leaves edges and shapes are such a great tool to make beautiful masterpieces. Fabulous Room 11, very impressive work!
These are Jess and Zac in action on Tuesday morning on Line 9. Fiordland College students and staff contribute to checking 54 traps in the Kids Restore the Kepler area since 2012.
The group also walked a short section of the Kepler Track, from Rainbow Reach to the start of Line 9. Jess and Zac, Y12 students from Fiordland College, shared their tracking and trapping knowledge with the other attendees. Great job!
