The Biodiversity Forum Bat Workshop September 20th, at Waikato Museum

Please pass around the flyer to any of your networks freely. The workshop is part of conservation week and will give attendees the chance to hear from some of our leading bat experts, who will provide us with a window into the mysterious world of bats and in particular the long-tailed bats we find right here in the Waikato. The workshop will include a review and demonstration of Bat monitoring techniques, and a look at potential bat habitat surrounding the Museum.

Either register on or directly to


Have you seen Yellow Flag Iris or Bone Seed flowering?

If anybody sees any yellow flag iris flowering can you please let me know? It will help with us timing our aerial surveillance over Whangamarino.

There is a good (bad) patch of it to the left when heading north on the highway near Rangiriri.

Find out more about yellow flag iris here:

Likewise if you see BONESEED flowers around Manu Bay or any of the harbours please let me know. This will help with the timing of a drone flight. Boneseed also has a small yellow flower. We all live in a yellow submarine…
