Webmaster with an interest in NZ moth species

We recently launched our new website and now we want to add more information about our beautiful NZ moths. There are over 1,800 different species of moth in NZ, and they are under-appreciated by the general public. We want to correct that! This job will involve taking information about our moths from a pdf copy of the book, and putting the information into a csv file so that it can eventually be uploaded to our website, https://www.nzbutterflies.org.nz/species/

Full training will be given. If you are studying or have studied biological sciences, invertebrates, ecological research, conservation or similar this will be of interest to you. Providing you have a desktop computer and excellent internet access you would be able to work from home. All information will be peer reviewed and proof-read before posting.

We have access to fantastic photographs of some of NZ's better known moth species.


The task needs a person who has a basic understanding, and/or an interest in zoology, ecology and taxonomy and other natural sciences.
