How you can help

There are many ways you can make a real difference in the lives of New Zealand's wild 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 a small team of professionals and so we rely heavily on our wonderful team of volunteers to help us provide the highest standard of care to the 6000+ birds who come through our doors every 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 would like to join our team as a volunteer and are based in Auckland, please apply today.

Involve your company

Volunteering as a workplace team is not only a fun team-building activity, but also a great way to connect with your local community and provide much-needed support for our staff.

Organise a fundraiser

From holding a bake sale to organising a sponsored walk, run, swim or movie night, fundraisers are a lot of fun.

Not only will you raise much-needed funds for BirdCare Aotearoa’s vital work, you will also increase awareness about New Zealand’s incredible birdlife.

Register your fundraiser on The Good Registry or GiveaLittle to get started. Please also email and let us know your plans!
