IT’S A BIT DIFFERENT

Pekapeka Educational Resource
As part of a Citizen Science initiative to help save the Pekakpeka, the native Long-tailed Bat, Community Waitakere commissioned A2 posters for schools and distribution throughout the community.
Primarily for schools, year 5 to 13, this poster is a resource giving a detailed background on the bat, as well as information on what can be done to help track and preserve the species. It had to make a large amount of information readable and engaging on different levels, for a broad readership, as well as making the process of gathering data from home approachable and accessible.

The magnificently detailed hand-painted illustrations by Erin Forsyth are the key to this poster.
