Our forest restoration and captive breeding programmes would not be possible without your contributions.

Do you hear that? That chattering in the foliage is the red-crowned kākāriki. Unfortunately, you are one of the lucky ones – most New Zealanders have never seen or heard this bird in the wild as it is critically endangered.
Thanks to the captive breeding programme at Pūkaha, we are happy to report that this beautiful bird is one of several native species that are now being reintroduced into the wild for future generations to see for themselves.
You can play your own part in the conservation story by making a donation to the Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre today. As a registered charity, our birds and the subsequent conservation programmes rely solely on the generosity of the community.
On behalf of every creature at Pūkaha, we thank you for your assistance.
If you are a New Zealander, you may be able to claim your tax back.
