Building better understanding of our butterfly and moth species, and creation of habitat through education.
Established in 2005, we were initially the Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust but realised that there were many people who didn't recognise our native butterflies (and detested moths).
We work with schools on establishing butterfly habitat, have speakers who visit schools and via webinars. Most schools sign up for a subscription to our magazine and many teachers have completed our On Line 'Create Butterfly Habitat' course.
Notice the signs of spring, sow seeds for bees and protect nesting birds, using this collection of resources, events and programmes that support seasonal learning in kōanga.
We explore ways you can use pukapuka with ākonga, including our favourite nature storybooks from Aotearoa and overseas.
Bianca Woyak has been awarded the Prime Minister’s Science Teacher Prize, in recognition of the place-based, outdoor projects that are engaging and inspiring ākonga at Burnside Primary School.
Winter is the perfect time to plant trees in Aotearoa and we have pulled together resources and events that can support ākonga to learn about and strengthen their relationships with trees.
