About 40 children and adults attended the Forest and Bird and Kiwi Conservation Club family event at the beach yesterday in which the aim was to build sea birds out of sand.

Forest and Bird has declared 2020 the year of the sea bird and encourages New Zealanders to submit on the Government’s draft National Plan of Action for Seabirds, which can be done until January 27.
