Buzzing about bats in Waipawa backyards

Pekapeka long tailed bat

By Kay Griffiths

There are bats about in Waipawa. The tiny native long-tailed bat.

These bats spend their nights flitting around trees and waterways catching a meal of insects like small moths, beetles, and mosquitoes.

"If you live in Waipawa, its quite likely that these bats are foraging around your place during the hours of darkness," says Kay Griffiths of The Conservation Company.
