How you can help

There are many ways you can help make a real difference to New Zealand's wild and native birds.

Volunteer to join our team

From running errands and making deliveries, gardening and maintenance right through to bird care, our volunteers help us out with just about every aspect of running the centre.

We are only a small team of professionals and so we rely heavily on our wonderful team of volunteers to help us provide the high standard of care to the 6000+ birds that come through our doors throughout the year.

Whether you have experience in bird care or are simply interested in helping us out, we provide training for everyone – it’s your availability and willingness to help that matter and that really make the difference.

If you think that you would like to join our team as a volunteer and are based in Auckland, apply today.

If you love a challenge and engaging with people then please apply for our Admissions Co-ordinator/Reception volunteer roles to really make a difference!

Involve your company

As well as being a great team building exercise, having your staff volunteer with BirdCare Aotearoa not only provides wonderful support for us, but it’s a great way to connect with your local community.

Organise a fundraiser

If you want to support us financially AND raise awareness in your community, fundraising is a great way to do this.

From holding a bake sale, to organising a sponsored walk, hosting an event – whatever you choose to do – fundraisers are a lot of fun.

And by holding a fundraiser, not only do you help raise money, but by shining a light on BirdCare Aotearoa, you really are showcasing the vital work that we do with injured birds.
