We love that so many children get enthusiastic about raising native plants from seeds, watching for beautiful birds in the bush or daring themselves to have a weta crawl up their arm!
Raising a new generation which thinks of biodiversity as a priority is a great goal.
Schools help biodiversity in many ways. Enviroschools have their curriculum activities focused on sustainability and biodiversity. Many other schools take part in planting programmes and have projects in their grounds.
If you want to create change - take it to the kids. The Hillmac Electrical Junior and Intermediate Speech Contests do just that!
What? Two speech contests to grow confident kids in Hawke’s Bay and grow awareness of our critically endangered endemic and native species
When? The Junior Speech Contest is on Thursday the 29th of August and the Intermediate Contest on the 5th of September from 6.30-8pm
Where? National Aquarium of New Zealand, Marine Parade, Napier
The focus? Endemic and native species
