Photo: JASON OXENHAM The Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust and Jacqui Knight are out to ensure the future of the insect is in safe hands. The Auckland resident is on a crusade to protect mon- arch habitats but help is needed. The trust is on the look- out for people to report mon- arch sightings across the country, after producing 20,000 numbered stickers to place on the butterfly wings. In March, people can start tagging and recording information on the com- puter, Ms Knight says. Anyone can take part and everyone, schools included, is welcome to join the trust s annual project. It is hoped the data col- lected from the tagged wings will help track the insects movements and map their annual migration pattern. The butterflies typically form large clusters, some- times containing hundreds or thousands of butterflies, on trees in well-sheltered areas during the colder win- ter months. The trust was initially set up in 2005 to work along- side a building developer in the Bay of Islands. It ident- ified trees on the property as a place the insects stay during winter that should be protected. From there the development halted but the group took off. Until the trust started tracking monarchs there was little research being done. We need to find out where the monarchs stay over winter because this late summer generation forms the breeding stock for the next year s monarch population. Data is needed on other butterflies and moths too. People are encouraged to report sightings of any tagged butterflies to the trust s website. Visit www.monarch.org.nz. FROM Page 12 The student s diagnosis was checked by the supervisor before treat- ment and this gave me further confidence More people in west- ern countries are trying this ancient method of healing and well-being and you will find it works for you too. If you decide to study in this area you can choose a major of Acu- puncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine or a combination of the two (Chinese Medicine) and complete either a three or four year qualification to graduate as a Chinese medicine or acupuncture practitioner. The degree is NZQA approved and meets ACC regulation requirements as well as international standards. There is a good future in the field because the government is now con- sidering regulating Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Regulation will mean practitioners will be regarded even more highly as profes- sionals and will be able to work in public hospitals and clinics. The programme at the NZ College of Chinese Medicine is a combin- ation of theory and prac- tical. You will apply the- ory from the wisdom of ancient Chinese sages as well as contemporary western medicine. You will learn the personal skills of being a good con- sultant, and the practice of locating and needling acupuncture points. You will enjoy mixing with tutors and students of different cultures. This is an international degree. And school leavers are welcome too. Tell your friends and families!
