Pukaha Mount Bruce - national wildlife centre

We went to the national wildlife centre. It is called Mount Bruce. We went to the gallery first. We saw a baby tuatara. We saw a movie about the forest. It burned down into farmland. The animals had to move, to relocate.

We went to go and see the birds. We walked to the lookout. It was steep. We found a wooden chair. Somebody cut a chair. On the way we saw a baby bird. It flew through my dad's legs and dad nearly stepped on it. We looked up what bird it was, it was a wren - rifleman or titipounamu (says mum). We saw a dead mouse and a dead rat, they killed it, because they poisoned it. I found an egg shell, and it was white.

At the top of the lookout we saw a beautiful view.

They have the tallest trees in the world, they are called redwoods. They don't belong here.

I will tell you all of the animals we saw: native pigeon, kaka, kiwi, tuatara, rabbit, house sparrow, parakeets, tui, eels, blue ducks and a dead skink in the shop. I hope these guys read this blog, they never noticed there was a skink behind the shelf.
