Weta Hotels

First, We had to put on gloves goggles & protective shoes. Then we went to go and cut the bamboo with a really sharp saw. After one person finished cutting they they put the saw on the table and give  the other people have a turn. After a while we started painted them black so when we put it in the harakeke it will blend in. Mean while Mr Vogt was drilling holes through the bamboo so we could put wire through the hole so we can hang it at the creek so the weta will have some where that bird can't eat them. Eventually we got to put the wire in it was kind of hard because we had to do a not and it was hard to bend.


  1. Hi Jane good to see Mr Vogt is making you wear the proper protective gear and keeping you safe during this activity so nice of you to think about the poor Wetas that might get eaten by the birds too.
    Keep protecting the environment and caring about the little creatures.

  2. What a great recount Jane! I was very proud of how careful your group was with the brand new hand saws. I'm even happier that you have written down our safety rules for them so we don't forget.
    I hope the Weta started moving into their new hotels by the Omaru Creek during the rainy weekend!
