This book was so popular for many years but went out of print... and now it's back.

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.

You will learn everything there is to know about the beautiful Monarch butterfly in the revised edition of The Monarch Butterfly of New Zealand. This book is in response to the unique educational opportunity that the Monarch offers and is a must have for any science class or backyard nature enthusiast of all ages. With captivating photographs and illustrations, each part of the life cycle is clearly depicted and fully detailed in the text.

We are fortunate that the Monarch butterfly makes such an ideal nature study and this book examines in detail the Monarch’s habits, special features, behaviours and means of survival as well as how it arrived in New Zealand which is history lesson on its own.

Anyone wishing to raise Monarchs in captivity or in their garden will find all you need to know in this concise little book.

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.
