Wetas

We spent a fantastic day at Zealandia in Wellington, where they are working to restore nature to pre-human arrival conditions.

Wetas are a group of insects (giant flightless crickets) endemic to NZ that have been around millions of years but are now at risk from habitat destruction and introduced predators. We were lucky enough to see a few weta while we were there.
