Winter Learning Journey - Day 3 Activity 2

For this activity I had to read about how people in New Zealand are working to kill pests like possums. I need to form an opinion and give three reasons why I think that way. I think that New Zealanders are doing the right thing by getting rid of the pests because:
1. They are eating the eggs of other animals like the Kokako.
2. They have diseases that can spread to other animals.
3. The pests damage native trees.


  1. Hi Aj,
    I agree with you too because possums are dangers to New Zealand and the environment. Its dangerous to the endangered animals like kokako's. Spectacular job make sure to update your blog every day.

  3. Hi AJ. I was surprised when I found out how Possums got to New Zealand. I agree with you they are pests. They can be very dangerous. Did you know that there were 50 - 70 million Possums in NZ in the 1980s? Your blogpost is great I like how you included a colon to show that you are writing a list.

  4. Hello AJ
    I agree with you. Possums are killing our native trees and are eating some of our native birds eggs. They aren't helping the New Zealand environment and they are (In my opinion) the worst pests. Keep up the amazing work AJ!

  5. Hi AJ,
    I agree with you and Daniel that pests should be killed because there are eating the eggs of other animals. Pests like possums could damage the native trees. Keep up the amazing work!

  6. Hi AJ, First I wanna say you have been doing great at the Winter Learning Journey activities. I agree with everybody that commented on AJ's work and you AJ too. Possums are killing out beautiful native trees.
    Keep it up.

  7. Hi AJ, I 100% agree with your opinion on weather possums should be removed/killed. They eat tons of different animals as well. Keep up the awesome posts!

  8. Hi AJ,
    I like the three things that you have put. I also think that we should kill pests. Well Done!

  9. Hell AJ!

    These are three strong reasons why we need to get rid of possums and pests! Well done! I agree with you - I think they are doing more damage than they're worth.
