The 'Bugman' Ruud Kleinpaste is a stalwart of Conservation in Aotearoa.

Catching kiwi in Waitangi Forest to catching insects... pretty much everywhere Ruud has working with almost every bird and beetle this country has to offer.

Over the last few decades he has also been turning up in places you don't often see conservationists - the TV. From The Early Bird Show with Suzy Cato in the early 90s through to his own show on Animal Planet.

Here is your opportunity for Ruud to take you bush in your neck of the woods. No matter where you live in Aotearoa you will be amazed what you can find in your own back yard.

So if you win the auction here is what you will get: Ruud will come to you and you will head out to a park, forest, wetland (this will be dependent on when you live) You will spend a couple of hours sitting under Ruud's learning tree Before you head back home with a some amazing memories and more than likely a photo of weta on your face.

This opportunity is open for up to 30 people - so whether you are a class room, scout group, birthday party, family gathering, garden club, Lions Group or walking squad all are welcome so get you bid in now!
