GODWITS Migration: Godwits were tracked and it was shown that they flew approximately 11,026 kilometres every year to the Yellow Sea of China. Because it is a non-stop flight the Godwits are the birds that are flying the longest distance in one way. Threats: A potential threat to the Bar-tailed Godwits are changing of their living area through humans and tracking. Due to inserting tracking devices into birds many of the male birds died because they couldn’t handle it. Explanation school crest: We think the godwits are on Nayland’s school crest because Nayland College has a lot of internationals who are also coming all over the world to Nelson, New Zealand and you can compare the journey of the godwits with the journey of the internationals.
