Later, scientists chose the genus name Deinacrida, demon grasshopper. So far 11 Giant species have been identified spread throughout New Zea...land and since 2009 the Weta Recovery Group established by the Dept of Conservation has colllaborated with dedicated organisations, iwi and individuals to help safeguard this threatened species.
