PLEASE DON'T FEED THE KĀKĀ
Get your year 9-10 students involved in the solution! Please don’t feed the kākā presents students with a real-world situation and challenges them to come up with a campaign to help prevent an undesired public behaviour – feeding kākā!
Overview: In this session, students are challenged to help Zealandia solve a real issue it is facing with supporting kākā conservation and breeding – to try to get the public to stop feeding kākā in their own backyards.
Participants will be presented with the issue and will be challenged to help come up with a campaign that Zealandia could deliver in local suburbs (or even wider Wellington) to help prevent an undesired public behaviour – feeding kākā!
Their campaigns will use the principles of a Community-Based Social Marketing (CBSM) in a simplified format.This step by step process will help guide students to a practical solution to the problem that has the best chance of success!
Session Type: This is a facilitated session where students will get to experience the Zealandia valley, witness kākā up close and then take this experience to support the continued conservation of the species.
With the Zealandia Educator, students will:
- - Gain an understanding of effective strategies to use in targeting behaviour change (specifically using Community Based Social Marketing as a model)
- - Gain an understanding of the challenges and complexities of trying to influence or change people’s behavior to meet conservation outcomes
- - Orally present purposeful ideas to their peers
- - Feel more empowered to action change in their communities to support a conservation cause
This session aims to challenge students to come up with a solution to a given issues using elements of a social inquiry approach, by allowing them to:
- - Ask questions, gather information and background ideas, and examine relevant current issues
- - Explore and analyse people’s values and perspectives
- - Consider the ways in which people make decisions and participate in social action
