KAKAPO PARROTS - Virtual Field Trip November 23-25, 2005

For schools in New Zealand, here's an opportunity to take your class on a "virtual" field trip to see the Kakapo Parrots.
LEARNZ is an online education programme for students in New Zealand state, private and integrated schools.

LEARNZ offers 16 virtual field trip experiences each year - students stay at school but visit places they would never otherwise go to and interact with people they would never meet. Students' participation is supported by online background materials and enabled using live audioconferencing, web board and diaries, images and videos uploaded daily.
Full details about how to register your school for the Kakapo field trip at the LEARNZ site:
