The day all of us bug enthusiasts have been waiting for has finally arrived. It is time to vote for Aotearoa’s Bug of the year 2023. Our lab group cannot wait to get our votes in for next years winner… The NZ Giraffe Weevil, obviously. Unfortunately the competition is quite stiff so the giraffe weevil may only win by the tip of their long nose.
To ensure our favourite crosses the finish line first we have dedicated a special page to showing off how iconic the giraffe weevil is. So if you want to bask in the giraffe weevil’s glory or simply test the confidence you have in your favourite bug’s chances go to our BoTY page.
As you can see from just a few #Bugoftheyear2023 tweets this is going to be one nail-biting competition and the giraffe weevil will really have to pull out all the stops to convert it’s naysayers. If you would like to help us get the giraffe weevil into the winners circle, join our campaign on twitter using the hashtag #TeamGiraffeWeevil or click here to vote.
