Playing our way
Kia Ora. Here we are, on islands like no others. Tips of the (mostly) submerged continent of Zealandia, in the landscape of Aotearoa / New Zealand.
From here, come my environmental games. Where we’re sometimes co-operating, sometimes competing, either way – in good heart.
I hope you’ll enjoy being gameful in our rich natural world too. Being kakariki / green, and playing our way!

When a plant is old enough, it starts making flowers. Each flower is an open invite to you, as pollinators, to come visit.
If the flower’s right for you, and if it’s a good day to be out (weather helps / weather hinders) then by DAY and by NIGHT, you’ll come.
As you come to drink nectar, you move pollen. The male pollen grains travel out on your body, and then, next stop, the female receptacles collect them back in.
If you all work together, and carry enough pollen from flower to flower, then the winning team is the one that collects the most (ensuing) berries and seeds.
