Carol Stensness, our Treasurer

Carol Stensness lives in the Far North, having recently “escaped” from Auckland (and the traffic), and has had a lifelong interest in Monarchs. She remembers having swan plants at home as a child.

In 2002 she started rearing butterflies in a couple of adapted wooden banana boxes, partly to help save the few plants she had, and also to protect the caterpillars from paper wasps. Now she has numerous caterpillar castles and finds them invaluable to protect growing caterpillars. She has participated in tagging each year which she enjoys.

Carol has a background in administrative and accounting support, has been a member of the MBNZT since 2005, and Treasurer since 2010.
