It's a really good way for scientists to get lots more information about the world around them as well as help others (like us) to learn about what is on the bush we are visiting. It was great to work with the youth ambassadors from Zealandia too. Maybe some of us will become youth ambassadors soon...
We learnt how to use iNaturalist and what Zealandia does for the plants and birds in this area. Zealandia also taught us how to protect New Zealand from pests. Some things we saw were: tui, kaka, a dead rat, kawakawa and sparrows.
