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, yet always with good heart.
I hope you’ll enjoy being gameful in our rich natural world too. Being kakariki / green, and playing our way!

Deep in the bush of Aotearoa/New Zealand, plants want to seed many new versions of themselves into the future.
So they make flowers. Beautiful flowers which call to you.
And, weather conditions allowing you, the pollinators, come visiting.
As you feed, they transform. You pick up and drop off pollen which they use to mix it up a little. You swallow the ensuing berries and (some) seeds, which pass through you, delivered far and wide.
It’s a lot of work. You all go to all this effort, so that someday, somewhere, a new plant will grow. Grow up and replace the old.
