Pt England School were lucky to have an amazing talk by Mr and Mrs Mistrel from Hiwi the Kiwi today. They taught us all about sustainability - which is a fancy word for keep things around for a long time. Those things are our fish and our birds. They also taught us about safety in the water.
Did you know?
- You must always wear a life jacket in a boat - even if you are a strong swimmer. Adults too!
- If a fish is less than 30cm long you MUST throw it back in the ocean
-If you throw litter in the ocean the birds can eat it and become sick and even die.
- Really, really big fish should be thrown back in the water as they are often Mummy fish and they have eggs inside! If they don't go back in the water they won't be able to give birth to more baby fish!
