    Hi all

    Here is a list of the suburbs (and postcodes) of those people who hare requested tags. They are sorted in postcode order, so you might find that some in urban areas are sorted differently from people near you geographically.

    Some may not be using the tags, it’s something we don’t monitor, but please feel free to email me, jacqui@monarch.org.nz, if you would like your contact details passed on to someone else in your area or an area of interest.

    Brilliant, Darren! This is very exciting… and I think you’re having fun too. 🙂



    Here is a map showing the recovered tags as of 11/6/10
    the gps co-ordinates were rounded to 2 decimal places for privacy.

    The is the same data represented using gpsVizualizer, using different sized coloured circles to represent numbers of butterflies.

    The advantage of mapalist is that it can automatically update data from a google docs spreadsheet. But it can also zoom in and show you the tagger’s garden if we don’t take precations.

    GPS Vizualizer generates a map but it doesn’t have the zoom function, so no privacy issues, and I think it looks prettier. It won’t automatically update but it could be a good way to represent data in a final report.



    HI Darren,

    Very interesting once I sussed out where you had placed me.
    Very good to see where the people are placed who are tagging butterflies this year.
    Well done!




    I cut the above list and pasted it into MapAList. The result is visible here:

    Obviously it would work better with street addresses or gps co-ordinates, but then we wouldn’t want it *too* accurate.



    Oh!! Alison! The Puke Hill school has just put in a butterfly garden, you can see it as you drive along Ward St. I’ll start educating the teachers there 🙂



    Hey Alison, I tagged my first butterfly the other day and am crossing fingers for many more. I am away for 4 days next week and my biggest worry is how many butterflies I will miss!




    Our local Mitre 10 has a gardening newsletter – I will contact them to see if we can add something on tagging.



    some good tips on communicating with the media on this site



    Will see what I can do;-)




    Those mainstream papers haven’t been very good at picking up on the stories I’ve been sending out – but there’s no reason why you couldn’t try your letter again, Char.

    I don’t think the flyers in the garden centres is workable: there are so many things on display around the check-outs. They’re very busy. Thinking of Kings they have a range of flyers/brochures around their check out and you don’t see people stopping to pick them up. Of course, there’s also the printing cost.

    But feel free to send your letter to TVNZ, TV3 etc too – you never know. Even if they get the same email/letter from several people. You never know when they are looking for something to fill in a spot – it just needs to arrive on the desk at the right time, and appeal to that person who sees it.




    Great news Jacqui. The story in the paper was worthwhile.
    Could we try the Herald, Sunday News or Sunday papers?

    What about garden centres for a flyer?




    More taggers enrolled today – Waterview (Auckland), Bucklands Beach and Nawton (Hamilton). First two from the publicity in Auckland suburban newspapers.



    Hi Rebecca
    The Brightwater school teacher photographed ‘my’ Monarch when they saw it in their butterfly garden, then all the children could study the tag number and Trust address. I’ve tried sneaking up on them when feeding but they’re just too wary and quick – even bought a butterfly net but caught only flowers! J



    Thanks for the list Jacqui – the best thing about that for me is that I know I’m not the only one in my area tagging, and therefore it is worth looking out for tags because there is a slight possibility that the tags I do see are not just my ones. Like Rebecca I have got very close to some tags and just missed getting the number! Very frustrating that!



    Will let you know if they need any photos, I have emailed them a few that I have taken myself – a male, a female and a tagged female.



    Wow we really are getting the word out there.
    This is fantastic, things are really looking up for the MBNZT;-)




    That’s great, Alison. If the Franklin newspapers want a photograph, I can email them one.





    Have contacted the Franklin newspapers this afternoon and they are going to publish the article about tagging. Waiuku Post is going to come and see me and write an article.



    Awesome Rebecca, keep your eyes peeled, we need lots of people like you.



    Thanks Jacqui, that must have taken some doing. It is interesting to see who’s possibly tagging near by, and possibly get some support like I did today because of your efforts.
    So thanks again

    Alison F



    A tagged butterfly came to my house this afternoon – at least I think it was it had a round white sticker dot on it’s outer wing. It had writing on it but it flew away as I got closer. So, if someone from Hamilton has tags like that then it was probably theirs!



    Great idea Jacqui thanks. I’ve met up with 3 others (who don’t tag) thru TOS (top of the south) and the forum. Good for help and support. J




    For those that want a map of th epostcode areas, go to the NZ Post website & head for the Address and Postcode Finder, select postcode & type in the code, when it gives a result, click ‘View map’. You can zoom out & see nearby areas or the whole country if you want!




    Hi Jacqui, thanks so much for that – Nic has made contact now, so it looks like we have all 3 of the Pukekohe lot. Also, I am looking for the letter to the editor you posted a few weeks ago re tagging. Can you put the link under its own topic as I think it may have been part of another topic that is why I am having trouble finding it.
