Advocacy Sustainability Conservation

Each year, thousands of people vote for which bird deserves to be crowned Bird of the Year.

But what many people don’t realise is that our native birds are in crisis. Many are at serious risk of going extinct.

Sixty-eight per cent of our birds are in trouble and 1 in 3 are at risk of becoming extinct. They face a range of threats. Their habitats are being destroyed and introduced mammalian predators such as stoats, possums, and rats kill their eggs, young, birds, and even adults.

There’s also the threat of climate change, which has the potential to limit their habitat range, increase pest numbers and, in some cases, reduce their ability to forage for food.

This is a critical time in New Zealand’s history. Nature is in crisis. Our wildlife, our wild places, and our native birds need you.

Nature’s future is in your hands.

Use of Funds:

Forest & Bird members do so much work to protect and restore our local wildlife and wild places through predator control, plantings, ecosystem restoration, advocacy - the list goes on.

We have successfully saved thousands of hectares of native forest and protected areas on land and in the sea.

This is only possible with the support from thousands of people across New Zealand like you.
