Conditions of Use
We had to write a letter to the Minister of Conservation to argue why our pest was a major threat to our environment.
23 August 2009
The Honourable Tim Gosner
Minister of Conservation
Dear Mr Gosner
We have heard that there is some funding available to control our invaders that wreck NZ’s bio diversity. There are lots of invaders in NZ but we think that stoats have a major impact to NZ’s wildlife.
Firstly, they chew tree roots which are joined to trees and it needs their roots to breathe.
Secondly, stoats kill our native birds and steal their eggs. If stoats kill our native birds there won’t be a native bird like the kiwi or native animals to represent our country, NZ.
Finally, they’re a major threat to our eco-system. We rely on birds to get rid of annoying bugs and if there are no birds there would be more annoying insects.
In conclusion we say that stoats have the biggest impact to our bio diversity. Therefore we believe we should get the funding to start a campaign, to show the public what this pest is doing to our wildlife.
