About BirdCare Aotearoa

With a highly professional, well trained, and experienced team, we offer a holistic service with a breadth of care unlike any other bird care centre in New Zealand.

Collaboration is central to our work. We work with other wildlife-related organisations to ensure we can use the depth of expertise and knowledge available. We also share our knowledge in a variety of ways, teaching others how to care for our precious birdlife.

Our staff are well regarded and we are known for being at the forefront of bird care and rehabilitation. As well as being available and open to local people who find an injured bird, we also coordinate with rescue centres and frontline responders throughout New Zealand, helping ensure that sick, injured, and orphaned wild birds receive the care they need.


Our vision is to establish BirdCare Aotearoa as a National Centre of Excellence in wildlife rehabilitation.


Our mission is to care about, and care for, all birds. We do this through advocacy, education and care.


At BirdCare Aotearoa, we pride ourselves on being pro-active, positive, energetic and inclusive.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to alleviate pain and suffering for all bird life in Aotearoa New Zealand, particularly wild birds and our New Zealand native birds.
