Weta Hotels.


Today weta hotels were placed around the Zoo enclosure."Brooklands Zoo assistant curator and hotel manager Eve Cozzi said weta are largely misunderstood and could do with some help to survive."

See the article in the Taranaki Daily News

You can build a weta hotel - use the plans from these researchers which were published in the New Zealand Journal of Ecology

There are around 70 species of Weta in New Zealand - but the most likely to occupy the hotels will be Tree Wetas, Hemideina thoracica
