October 13, 2020

With over 1400 bat species around the planet, we decided to cover New Zealand's only native land mammals. Prior to humans, there were only 3 species of mammals, all bats. Once humans arrived, other mammals were introduced like mice, rats, stouts, possums and others. These introduced mammals have been devastating to New Zealand's native wildlife, to include their bats. Join us this week as we cover a very unique species from one of the world's most unique ecosystems.
