Kia ora and welcome to Super Insects!

My name’s Āwhina the Giant Wētā and I am indigenous to Aotearoa. I'm really excited to take you on a journey to see some of this country's super insects and learn that we aren't that scary and we're worth saving!

My friend, Ruud, is New Zealand's very own Bug Man. He’s an entomologist, which is someone who studies insects. He loves bugs even more than me!

Join Ruud and I as we adventure into the wonderful world of insects that live right here in Aotearoa!
