MABA provides a forum for publishing natural history observations and discoveries (e.g. life histories, linking caterpillars to adults, behaviour). Such publications currently take the form of an electronic newsletter, published on a regular basis.


Members are eligible to attend the very informative annual events run by MABA: these events include social activities, talks, workshops and field trips. MABA has an important role in education by assisting the general public, industry, government and other stakeholders with species level identifications (e.g. from images) or providing information on species. The development of tools for identification of images on the internet (e.g. of live adults and larvae) is seen as an important resource and an adjunct to the Moths On-Line.


MABA provides grants to support biosystematics through The Australian Lepidoptera Research Endowment and biodiversity conservation through the MABA Biodiversity Fund.
