DISCOVERING OUR NATIVE BATS

The short and long-tailed bats are New Zealand's only native land mammals and they are under severe pressure from introduced mammalian predators and competitors. In this Science, Social Science and Sustainability-based unit we introduce studes to our bats – pekapeka, the reasons for their severe decline in numbers, and explore the measuress we can take to protect these fascinating, precious and unique species of mammal. Best suited to years 5-10+.
