While often far from our shores, New Zealand has over 85 species of squid! Our marine environment is as important as the terrestrial but are often hard to study, hard to protect and in the case of squid, hard to even find!
Three interesting facts about squid:
- Squid have three hearts
- Giant squid eyes are the size of Frisbees
- Squid proteins are being used to develop alternatives to plastic
