Students learn about the importance of being kaitiaki - guardians of our natural world as they experience the amazing pest-free valley at Zealandia.

Overview: With an area equivalent to 320 rugby-fields, Zealandia provides an enormous space for unique species to live without the threat of introduced pests and predators. Students will experience first-hand what is possible when humans act decisively to protect, preserve and promote our natural world.

Session Type: Facilitated 2.5 hour session consisting of an interactive indoor activity and a ~2 hour guided walk in smaller groups. With Zealandia Educators the students will:

  • - Learn about New Zealand’s unique wildlife and why much of it is under threat.

  • - Consider how their actions might impact the environment and what actions can create a positive change.
