On Wednesday, 23rd October 2012, a large group of children, parents and teachers from Waverley Kindergarten visited Bush Haven. They were escorted around the property, shown the hospital facilities and given a comprehensive narrative about some of the birds in care, and the other native and exotic birds.
The children and adults were told of the threats to the kereru such as window strikes and being hit by cars, also about how fireworks can be such a threat to all our native birds.
This is the second year that Waverley have brought their children here so they must enjoy the visit and judging by the comments made by the adults, they all thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
We hope they all gained some knowledge of the bush and the birds in Otatara.
