NatureWatch NZ (naturewatch.org.nz) is a website for observing New Zealand nature, powered by the open source iNaturalist system (inaturalist.org). You can record observations of any species, of anything, found in New Zealand. The online community at NatureWatch NZ will help identify things that you don't know. The more observations everyone makes, the more we learn all about New Zealand nature and how it's changing.

This video introduces students of Lincoln University's Biological Diversity class (Ecol202) to how to enter observations of New Zealand butterflies, and their associated plants, to NatureWatch NZ. Ecol202 has a project on NatureWatch NZ called the Great Canterbury Butterfly Hunt (naturewatch.org.nz/projects/ecol202-great-canterbury-butterfly-hunt).

While this video is targeted at Ecol202 students, you'll likely also find some useful things in it if you're new to NatureWatch NZ
