Pūkaha welcomes locals and friends from all over the world who are keen to make a difference and give something back.
As a recognized charity, we place willing volunteers in suitable roles on-site including in restoration, breeding and hosting. Short and long-term options available.
Without our generous volunteers, Pūkaha would be a very different place!
