Urban Ark Talk - The Insect Advocate
Thursday 13 April 2023, 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Join Auckland Zoo’s insect afficionado Ben Goodwin for an introductory talk about the diverse groups of crawling critters which are represented in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Ben devotes his spare time to exploring Auckland’s less-visited corners looking for rarely-seen species and If you’ve heard him talk before, you’ll know that he can enthuse and amuse an audience about even the most obscure moth or moss. If you haven’t, come along to hear him highlight a scattering of species which exemplify our unique native fauna.
For a taste of what makes Ben tick, check out this Radio New Zealand interview about his work breeding over four thousand threatened giant wētāpunga and introducing them to islands in the Hauraki gulf.
