Activity 1:Predator Free 2050 – A Call to Arms
Out of the three vidoes I watched I picked the first video. I picked this video because they are working to protect our native birds and wildlife from predetors such as possums and Stoats. I also like this video because they are actually using engineering and technology too catch the predators, I have always like the idea of engineering at school I am in this robotics thing and we are trying to help our pollution problem by engineering with actual engineers from fisher and paykel healthcare. Another reason I like this video because they are not using poison and dropping them in the bushes because this was on the News a while a go they were dropping 1080 in the bushed which is irresponsible and dangerous, it's also pretty harsh on the predators it not there fault it in there nature!
