Wild Dunedin Medal…Bug Motel Contest

Toyota Kiwi Guardians —

As with many events, our regular festival programme has been postponed due to Covid-19. But never fear, you can still earn your unique Toyota Kiwi Guardians Wild Dunedin Medal at home!

Between 17 April – 8 May, Cooke Howlison Toyota has teamed up with DOC to run a bug motel contest across Otago. Send us a picture of your bug motel in your backyard and the best will be featured on our Facebook page. There’s a bunch of different ways to create a bug motel, use anything you can find; sticks, leaves, wood, bricks, wool, feathers, anything that creates a cosy space for bugs!

 Email your pictures tomarketing@cookehowlison.co.nz and claim your medal from the DOC website.

To help you in making your bug motel take a look at this WWF video:
