Project Overview

Ahi Pepe MothNet – Aotearoa is citizen science that aims to engage teachers, tamariki (children), and whanau with moths, ecology and how science is conducted and connected to everyday life.

In te reo Māori, ahi translates as fire and pepe as moth – symbolic references to sparking interest in our fascinating, endemic moths.

This citizen science project is now available to the whole of Aotearoa!

Learn more about the project with videos in te reo Māori and English.

Puka Whakamārama o Te Pepe Nui – moth identification guides – have been sent to New Zealand schools and are available for download.

Go to Ahi Pepe MothNet – Aotearoa for more information about the project.
