Famous for fronting the $20 note, kārearea can clock 230km/h and can catch prey mid-flight. They have even adapted to hunt within the dense New Zealand forests. Is this aerial acrobat going to smash the competition this year?
I’m Nich, a Master of Wildlife Management student and I'm here giving the karearea some love. It is an unforgettable experience to spot a kārearea in the wild but unfortunately, these swift killers are seldom seen. So, for this year’s BOTY campaign I’m here providing them the opportunity to be in the spotlight!
