Joanna Gordon, Trustee

Joanna has been fascinated by moths and butterflies since childhood.

Her memories are of red admirals, magpie moths, monarchs and common blues on her Grandma’s back lawn.

Occasionally, there were the impressively sized and coloured puriri moths as well.

“I struggle now to find any of our native beauties, or their eggs and caterpillars,” she said.

Joanna’s background is in public policy. She lives on a lifestyle block in the foothills of the northern Tararua Range.
