HOT BUY Keeping an eye on our butterflies By CARLY TAWHIAO Madame butterfly: Monarch NZ Trust secretary Jacqui Knight is on a mission to improve and protect the habitats of all New Zealand's moths and butterflies by raising their profile. Photo: JASON OXENHAM The Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust and Jacqui Knight are out to ensure the future of the insect is in safe hands. The Blockhouse Bay resi- dent is on a crusade to protect monarch habitats but help is needed. The trust is on the lookout for people to report monarch sightings across the country, after producing 20,000 num- bered stickers to place on the butterfly wings. In March people can start tagging and recording infor- mation on the computer,'' Ms Knight says. Anyone can take part and everyone, schools included, is welcome to join the trust's annual project.'' It is hoped the data collected from the tagged wings will help track the insects' movements and map their annual migration pattern. The butterflies typically form large clusters, sometimes containing hundreds or thou- sands of butterflies, on trees in well-sheltered areas during the colder winter months.'' The trust was initially set up in 2005 to work alongside a building developer in the Bay of Islands. It identified trees on the property as a place the insects stay during winter that should be protected. From there the development halted but the group took off. Until the trust started tracking monarchs there was little research being done. We need to find out where the monarchs stay over winter because this late summer gen- eration forms the breeding stock for the next year's mon- arch population.'' Education is an important aspect of the trust which is always open to talking to schools, gardening groups or anybody interested in New Zealand's 17 species of moths and butterflies. It's not only monarchs. Data is needed on other butterflies and moths too, such as the forest ringlet and red admirals.'' People are encouraged to report sightings of any tagged butterflies to the trust's website. Visit www.monarch.org.nz or write to the Monarch NZ Trust, PO Box 44100, Pt Chevalier, Auckland 1246.
