Coming Events

Do you know of an event or project where the conservation of NZ’s butterflies and/or moths and/or their habitat is being encouraged or promoted? We are happy to share the information here. Sometimes it will be the MBNZT that is promoting it but often there are individuals or other groups (formal and informal, paid or voluntary) doing the hard work. Please send an email to and we’ll be happy to tell others about your efforts here.
