Find these little guys in NZ
We recently went to Russell and lived in the historical Duke of Marlborough hotel. After exploring the beaches, hole in the rock, museum and the local eateries we explored the crafts market in the town hall.
This is where we discovered the Project Song where local volunteers and artists have joined forces to save the native birds of New Zealand.
Find the crafts market and buy these little mouse which cost only $10 of which $5 is given to the project which then sets up traps on local islands to eradicate the rodents and predators. I also had the honour of buying the 1000th mouse!
These rodents have reached the islands on ships due to human intervention and are threatening the unique flightless birds of NZ. Human intervention is now required to clean the islands and preserve this natural wonder.
