We are learning about the New Zealand lesser short-tailed bat and the long-tailed bat A.K.A the pekapeka.
In New Zealand there are two types of bat the lesser short-tailed bat and long-tailed bat. The greater short-tailed pekapeka (the third species) was last spotted in the 1960’s and is presumed extinct. The pekapeka is an extremely unique and incredible animal but sadly they are dying out and this can only be solved if we work together and stop this amazing creature from dying out.
