Our Kakapo Bird Adoption

posted Nov 14, 2017, 1:56 PM by Marcelle Natusch   [ updated Nov 14, 2017, 1:57 PM ]

Kakapo birds can only be found in NZ. With fewer than 150 birds in existence they are are being brought back from the brink of extinction by the Kakapo Recovery Team. 

The Kakapo Team have adopted Sinbad. One of the kakapo birds that needs are help.
Sinbad was hand-raised from the age of three weeks. He was born or 'hatched' on 13th of March 1998. 

Here is SInbad. 

Here is the Kakapo Team of Vardon School with our adoption certificate and soft toy of SInbad.

The Kakapo Team (and room 15) are learning about Bees. 
We had Jono (Jenna and Asher's Dad) come in to talk to us about Bee Keeping.
We learnt so much and have further questions to explore during our "Curiosity" afternoons.
