Everything we do depends on the generosity of people like you. We receive no government funding and rely entirely on our wonderful supporters to help us provide life-saving care for thousands of birds every year.
The most effective way to support us is by becoming a regular donor. Your regular donation will give us stability, allow us to plan for the future, and ensure that our doors remain open all year round.
We need around $650,000 each year to provide food, medication and housing for our patients and to fund our small team.
- $10 helps buy fresh fruit for tauhou (silvereye)
- $20 provides fresh nectar for four tūī
- $50 goes towards care for one bird a day
- $100 helps fund pain relief and physiotherapy for six kererū
- $200 can buy fresh crustaceans and fish for kororā (little blue penguin), tākapu (Australasian gannet) and tītī (Cook’s petrels) for one month
- $500 helps fund one week of food for our hospital patients
- $1,000 supports veterinary care, surgery and x-rays for ten birds
- $5,000 buys one year of live insects – vital for the rehabilitation of birds such as kōtare (kingfisher), pīwakawaka (fantail), riroriro (grey warbler) and warou (welcome swallow)
