Afterwards, monitor your hotel online via CCTV (Creepy-Crawly TV). Using VR technology, our staff will record and upload 360° views of the inside activity, so you can see who’s moved in!

Part Two

We’ll invite you to come back a month or two later, to BioBlitz Bush City with Te Papa’s scientists. Inspect the hotels, learn from our experts, and do some great citizen science. You might even win a prize for your hotel design.
