The workshop will undertake bat surveys and monitoring studies in Auckland’s North West. We will provide training, support and equipment to volunteers from the North West of Auckland to monitor for pekapeka. Our target areas include Paremoremo, Greenhithe, Riverhead, Coatesville, Whenuapai, Albany and the Kaipatiki Local Board area.
Through this project, we aim to establish new long-term monitoring sites that will help us to better understand pekapeka and our newly recruited Batpeople will collect robust data that can be shared with lead agencies like the Department of Conservation and Auckland Council.
There will also be opportunities to use handheld bat monitors and attend evening bat walks.
If you think you have what it takes to be one of our Batpeople and would be available for our two-day workshop please register. Limited spaces so get in quick!!
