Trust at Tomahawk Beach, Dunedin, with EnviroschoolsPosted on April 13th, 2012 No comments
David spoke to the students about living with penguins on southern beaches. Students had hands on experience of yellow-eyed penguin nest searching, and learnt about penguin monitoring, moulting penguins and how to keep penguins safe from predators.
There was some great feedback from the students, and excellent questions, and luckily everyone’s fingers and toes were intact after the trap demonstration and trap petanque!
Thanks to Trust volunteers Caroline Forsyth, Linzi, and Michael Stevenson who ably helped out on the day with setting up all the equipment and leading the teams of nest searchers.
