Last week the Enviro Leaders were lucky enough to be asked to share with interested local farmers and businesses about what we have been learning about in regards to predator reduction, and our ideas about where this learning could take us. As winners of the Supreme Award at the Ballance Farm Environment Awards, Duncan and Tina Mackintosh held a field day to share their story and we were fortunate to be given a spot to share. It was great to be able to share about why we are Enviro Leaders and not only the learning we've been doing, but where we hope to take it. Ideally we're keen to be involved in the trapping of predators in our community and are exploring ways to make this happen. We answered a few questions and feedback was positive.
We are really keen to get back into the classroom and investigate the tracks and chew marks that we have found. We're interested to know what animals are lurking in the bush, and what impact they are having. We enjoyed a quiet rest once we had finished laying the tunnels and could identify a few native bird calls. It's fabulous to be out learning about our unique environment and how we can work to protect it!
