Citizen Science - Spotlight on moths

From The Weekend , 9:28 am on 9 January 2016

Moths tend to fly under the radar when it comes to scientific research despite the fact they're important pollinators for plants and food source for native birds.

But a new Citizen Science project in Otago is literally putting the spotlight on them.

Dr Barbara Anderson is overseeing the project Shedding Light on the Night with the help of several Otago schools, University of Otago, the Orokonui Ecosanctuary north of Dunedin and some of her colleagues at Landcare Research.
