Whio Month

March is Whio Awareness Month and there is a whole range of “whio fun” to be had when you visit Pukaha.

Join in the Genesis Energy and Department of Conservation "Show Us Your Duck Face" competition. Click here to enter or enter the annual whio colouring competition here.

Prizes include an amazing whio adventure for 2 adults and 2 kids to go and visit whio in the wild.

In our visitor centre you can play the "Flukey Whio" game.
For just a $2 gold coin donation you can choose a floating whio from the pond. The colour on the bottom of your whio equals a prize. Everybody wins something but one lucky person per day could chose the "Flukey Whio" and be in the draw to win a Pukaha annual membership!

Competition drawn April 1st 2018.

During March learn cool whio facts at our 4pm final flight ranger talk and all day you can visit our whio in the free flight aviary.
