A BIG thank you on behalf of our little blue penguins…

In March this year, hundreds of bird lovers like yourself gave generously to our matched giving campaign.

Thanks to YOU, we raised over $13,800 to build a dedicated, predator-free waterbird enclosure for our little blue penguins, to give them the best chance of survival in a stress free environment.

We are so grateful for the generous support we received and for our most successful ever direct mail campaign to help the wild birds of Aotearoa!

We will keep you posted on our progress with the building of the enclosure. This will include a pool with circulating water, a mosquito screen to prevent disease transmission, and burrows to give them a choice of places to hang out.

We couldn’t do any of this without the incredible support you give to the birds.

Thank YOU!  x

Next steps… we held our first planning meeting for the build last week.  Next on the list is to source a few local retired builders who would love to get stuck into a project that really makes a difference.  And if we're lucky to find someone that would project manage, that would be the icing on the cake!  Get in touch if this sounds like you!
