    Some parks and reserves contain native plants. Are there plans to monitor the native invertebrates? If so I can show you a simple pictorial way of doing so which is suitable for 3 levels of expertise: student, standard and expert.

    Kia ora Nicholas,

    The local board supports an education programme run by Auckland Council's Sustainable Schools team where students use tracking tunnels and artificial cover objects to monitor terrestrial invertebrates, as well as Wai Care monitoring equipment for aquatic invertebrates, recording any findings on iNaturalist.

    RIMU (Auckland Council's Research and Evaluation Unit) did trial invertebrate monitoring in 2017 as part of the Regional Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Programme. Here is a link to an article where you can read more about this: https://knowledgeauckland.org.nz/publications/monitoring-research-quarterly-mrq-december-2017/ . RIMU are still finalising the outputs of this project.

    If you have any further ideas on what you think should be a priority for the local board and your community for the next three years, or you want to know more about these projects, please let us know. You can email  the local board at maungakiekietamakilocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz


    Ngā mihi,

    Mal Ahmu
