The hunt for the Forest Ringlet Butterfly

From Lately, 10:49 pm on 29 September 2020

To butterfly news now! The call has gone out nationwide for people to report sightings of the native Forest Ringlet Butterfly. The butterfly is expected to be in decline and in recent years it has been retreating from traditional habitats. 

Jacqui Knight is the Secretary of the Moths and Butterflies New Zealand Trust and she joins Karyn to discuss the plight of the butterfly.
