Help save a butterfly today!

A beautiful Monarch butterfly, brand new but as seen in the 50's - every second house had one on an exterior wall. Pure Kiwiana!

This auction is for LARGE 415mm wide and is true to the Monarch butterfly in orange, with black and white.

Other sizes and colours are available - red, blue, green, yellow, purple, black & white, or pink.

Made of outdoor-treated plywood and painted with exterior house paint, they will withstand NZ's weather for years. Antennae are made from a pipe cleaner. Comes with screws for attaching to walls etc.

The butterflies are handmade and hand-painted to order, so there is sometimes a couple of days delay before posting.

These are fundraising items for the Moths and Butterflies of New Zealand Trust.

Funds raised go towards research and education projects for the preservation of NZ's butterflies and moths and habitat.

Proceeds to the Moths and Butterflies of New Zealand Trust to protect NZ's butterflies, moths and habitat. Incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 as a registered charitable trust, No. 1679763, with donee status, registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957, CC11297, the Trust is raising awareness of NZ's butterflies and moths so they can be protected and encouraged before they become endangered; when bringing them back to our landscape would be so much more difficult. Anecdotal evidence tells us numbers are declining.

At the close of the auction you will be asked to deposit directly into the trust's bank account. Visit www.monarch.org.nz for more information, or to become a citizen scientist and take part in our research projects. Please click here to ask a question
