My name is Niamh and I am 10 years old. I love numbats. For my MK project I wanted to share a place I think is very special, Dryandra Woodland. It is south of Perth in the wheatbelt, near Narrogin. I think it is special because it is one of the only places where people can still see numbats in the wild if they are lucky. Project Numbat says there are less than 1,000 numbats left in the wild. There are also lots of echidnas in the woodland.
I helped organise a camp for MK kids and their families with my mentor Cathy. There were 34 of us. We stayed at Gnaala Mia campground and enjoyed visiting Barna Mia wildlife sanctuary on a nocturnal experience where we saw rare mammals. We explored different parts of Dryandra on bushwalks and had marshmallows (vegan ones) at a campfire. We had an MK meeting in the woodland which was special. Some of us talked using Noongar words and learnt new ones. On the walks we saw lots of birds and many wildflowers. During the camp at Dryandra woodland some of us saw numbats, echidnas, a wallaby, a bobtail, possums, bilbies, boodies, woylies, marla, rufous hair wallabies and burrowing bettong.
I am excited everyone had such a great time and want to plan another adventure with Millennium Kids and their families.
