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.
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.
Don’t worry if you don’t know the fern’s name – we’ll tell you!
If you’d like a bit of help with spotting ferns, check out our Science Live: Secret World of Ferns video or try our Is it a fern? quiz.
Enter the competition
There are two ways to enter:
- the easiest is to email your New Zealand fern photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
- the best way is to upload your New Zealand fern photo to the citizen science website NatureWatch so that your observation becomes data for ongoing scientific research on ferns. We have more detailed instructions about using NatureWatch here. Each entry using NatureWatch counts twice!
The competition closes 31 May 2014.
