Im stoked to inform you all, that my book is now available to purchase worldwide on Amazon. This is great news saving international shipping costs.
This step by step guide on the wonderful life cycle of a monarch butterfly, comes with heaps of fun facts and everything you need to know on how to create an ideal pollinators paradise in your own garden. It is an excellent A4 guide, with over 54 pages of beautiful coloured photos and in-depth information – the perfect resource book for teachers working in pre-schools or primary schools, who want to learn more to teach their students on raising healthy monarch caterpillars within the classroom or outdoors. Perhaps you’re that person, like me, who treats their caterpillars as pets, and loves being in their garden connected to nature watching the magical transformation. Monarchs butterflies have rapidly become my true passion in life, and now I want to share it with children and educators. I’m hoping this will ignite a passion for Monarchs in others too, and ultimately save this beautiful species from extinction. Monarchs are truly a symbol of hope for our Planet.
I would love to know what you thought of my book, please add a review to share for others that are considering buying my book on Amazon once you have read it.
Less than 2 weeks after the horrific attacks here in Christchurch The Butterfly Musketeers visited the beautiful children at Linwood Ave School. Linwood Ave School is about a minute away from the Mosque where our beloved brothers were shot in a cowardly act whilst praying.

Kia ora koe! Synchronicities happen all the time in our life! I wanted a blank wall in the central city where I could get my artist to paint a Monarch mural. I had the funds ready which were raised within the community, but didn’t know where to start looking! I wanted a mural in the city so all children could have wings and stand in front of the mural and have their photo taken so they could spread their wings, rather than murals on private grounds within schools.

I grates me to print such a title, but sadly its true. Monarch’s butterflies are here to teach us many things and they need our help in boosting their numbers. Imagine living in a world where there are no butterflies? Today we are living in a world where there are so many endangered animals and species, because we have taken away their habitats, killed for food or hunted for money which has led to some animals becoming extinct.

This September 2018 I plan to share HEAPS of packets of Swan Plants & Acelplcia seeds from Yates NZ. That’s 1000’s of extra Swan Plants around the Christchurch area for the Monarch butterflies to lay their eggs on and feed off. This will give a massive boost for the Monarch butterfly population in our environment this coming summer.

I choose this design to give children hope. I hope every child that sees this monarch butterfly believes he or she has the wings to fly, to become anything that they wish to become when they are adults, and know it’s possible that their dreams can come true.
