1 Canterbury Museum, Christchurch

A sneak peek will be presented of an upcoming exhibition on spiders at Canterbury Museum. The exhibition will be based on the book “A Photographic Guide to Spiders of New Zealand” by Cor Vink and Bryce McQuillan and will have information on spider biology, photographs of 40 spiders that can be found in Canterbury and a feature on the invasive redback spider (Latrodectus hasseltii). A public programme aimed at primary schools will be based on the exhibition; this will involve lessons on spiders at the Museum and schools exploring the diversity of spiders found in Canterbury through a NatureWatch project.
