Summer Learning Journey ! Part ( 1 )

New Zealand has a really special environment. Many of the plants and trees found in New Zealand are not found anywhere else in the world. These plants and trees are endemic to our country.  In New Zealand, one of the largest and longest living endemic trees is the NZ Kauri tree. Kauri are mainly found in three regions of New Zealand: the Coromandel, Auckland and Northland. The largest Kauri tree in the country is in the Waipoua Forest in Northland. It is called Tāne Mahuta. Some people refer to it as the ‘Lord of the Forest.’The Question Is - Thousands of people go to visit Tāne Mahuta every year. Would you like to be one of those people who got to see Tāne Mahuta in real life? Why or why not?On your blog, tell us whether you would like to go and visit Tāne Mahuta one day. Be sure to tell us why you do (or do not) want to visit this endemic tree. 
 1). I dont wanna see it because the other day I or we learnt that some trees we're dieing from the kauri dieback we might not know if the kauri die back is on our shoes and we carryed the kauri dieback around with us and giving it to other trees.

2).I apprecuate the trees from growing and cutting down and making newspapper and wood for our houses.
My next activity will come on Dec 18 Tuesday !
Blog ya later guys !

  1. Great start to your summer learning journey Andrea!

  2. Kia Orana Andrea,

    Cia here from the Summer Learning Journey Ako Hiko team.

    I like that you have given a clear view point and reason why you would not want to visit Tāne Mahuta. Perhaps next time you could elaborate more on Kauri Dieback for readers who may not know what it is.

    There are a few steps people can take before visiting Kauri forests to prevent the spreading of Kauri Dieback. Do you know what those steps are?

    One day I’d like to visit Tāne Mahuta so I can see the mighty tree up close. They grow to be so tall and magnificent I’d love to see it in person as a picture wouldn’t do them justice.

    I look forward to reading more of your Summer Learning Journey posts, keep it up.

    Toe feiloa’i fo’i (see you again),
