Orokonui Ecosanctuary class visit.

Yvonne Caulfield —

In October 9Q were lucky enough to have Sam from Orokonui Ecosanctuary visit.

Sam shared with us the importance of the invertebrates in our ecosystems. He brought a selection on animals for us to meet including a beautiful tunnel web spider. These spiders are commonly found in our garden and while they are big and quite fierce looking they are actually quiet and non-aggressive. He also introduced us to a rather large female stick insect.
