Get yourself one of Pekapeka t-shirts – designed to raise awareness of our native bat.

Proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts support our education and advocacy for our native bats. Pekapeka-tou-roa are endemic, and one of only two native mammals in Aotearoa – the other being the Pekapeka-tou-poto (short-tailed bat). They roost in big old trees, including totara, kahikatea, eucalyptus and pine and rely on the green corridor systems along the river, lakes and gully system. They are critically endangered, the biggest threats being habitat loss and predators like rats, stoats, possums and cats.

About the artist: Born and raised in Hamilton, Iata Peautolu is a multidisciplinary artist who is known for his tamoko and tatatau practice. Inspired by his Maori and Niuean lineage, Iata takes pride in his dual heritage, which is reflected within his work from tatatau, painting, illustration to graphic design. He draws his creativity from his urban upbringing in Hamilton and the art culture that continues to evolve in this modern world. He created this design for Go Eco to help raise awareness for pekapeka-tou-rou in Aotearoa.

The T-shirts are screen printed by Studio 386 – a fellow Frankton business!  Note: For a colour guide please check out the AS Colour website
