10 days left to find ferns and win!

You’ve only 10 days left to enter our Find ferns and win! competition.

Entering is easy – find a New Zealand fern, take its picture, and send the picture to us; more details below.

You can win your choice of one of these Te Papa Press books; each fern picture entered increases your chances of winning. Image © Te Papa.

What can you win?

Each fern picture gets you in the draw to win either one of these books from Te Papa Press or (if you can get to Wellington) your own personal tour of Te Papa’s botany collection.

Or, if you can get to Wellington, we’ll give you your own personal tour of Te Papa’s collection of dried plants.  You’ll see specimens that were with Captain Cook on board the Endeavour, as well as other treasures such as Logania depressa, which was seen alive once and then never again.  Photo © Te Papa.
