What are Wetapuna exactly? What is their role in the New
Zealand forest ecosystems? Ben Goodwin will explore the
ethos behind the captive breeding and release programme
of Auckland Zoo. He has been immersed in the project since
the beginning so will be able to give us the nuts and bolts of
husbandry of our most charismatic insect.
