Kiri-ganai Research is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the upcoming Kids’ Conference, which will be run in conjunction with the Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference with the theme Feral Futures 2051. Specifically, Kiri-ganai will sponsor the participation of two New Zealand schools to participate alongside ten Australian schools at the Kids’ Conference on 27 May 2021.
The two schools are the Auroa Primary School located in the south western part of New Zealand’s North Island, and Burnside Primary School located in Christchurch on the South Island. Students from the Auroa school will present on their robotic possum tail attractor to lure and capture feral possums, while the students of Burnside School will discuss their effort to create an endangered butterfly sanctuary (the Boulder Copper Butterfly Project).
All of us at Kiri-ganai Research seek to improve the environments and how we interact with them across Oceania and Asia in particular. We take great joy in sponsoring and working with the next generation to find solutions to the challenges previous generations have created for them.
