Polly Pekapeka (our Manu | Bird of the Year 2021) is looking for adventure, so she’s off visiting KCCers around Aotearoa – and beyond. Follow all her adventures out and about in nature HERE.
In August 2022, Polly went to stay with Iris (age 8) in Napier. Here’s what they got up to together…
Polly went to school with me. She had an over the top time with my class. I taught them facts I learned about the pekapeka – like how they live in groups, and that they shift roost trees most nights.
We took Polly for a nice walk in the botanical gardens where we identified native trees.
My dad and I started to build a bat box on our last day with Polly. We’re going to paint it next and put it up high on the house.
Thank you for the chance to spend some time with her!
Cool bat box Iris! 🦇
