For many years, The Auckland Museum’s Natural Sciences team have been interested in the biodiversity of their backyard Pukekawa, Auckland Domain. In 2018, The Auckland Domain Nature project is was officially set up which aims to regularly conduct biodiversity surveys and encourage visitors to observe the natural history in Auckland’s oldest park.

Learning programme CSI: Pukekawa, citizen science investigations, was established to get students outside and record observations on citizen science tool iNaturalist. This global website allows scientists from the Museum, NZ & those across the globe to identify and interact with students’ findings in the Domain. The schools that have participated so far have been very enthusiastic, and this has led to some exciting, and sometimes unexpected bonus outcomes.
