New Zealand Nature Heroes is designed to inspire and empower New Zealand kids to be naturalists and conservationists.
Aimed at the 8-14 age range, the book features stories of 15 different nature heroes, people, who, in the past, or currently, are working to protect and understand New Zealand’s natural world. These inspirational profiles are complemented with information about key animals, plants or habitats, and then each matched with an authentic activity that kids can do to make a difference. The aim of the book is to encourage our children to become citizen scientists, who are engaged with our local environment.
