Project Island Song Floating Classroom conservation education programme

$120 of $30,680 goal
Given by 3 generous donors in 12 weeks

We need your help to launch Bay of Islands’ school children on a voyage of wildlife discovery, education and leadership development.


The Project Island Song Floating Classroom is a natural platform for conservation discovery,

learning, and leadership.

Each year up to 320 children from 8 Bay of Islands’ schools are launched on a voyage of discovery. Through the Project Island Song Floating Classroom children are actively engaged in field based education, connecting with their environment through curriculum aligned activities and resources.

The floating classroom delivers a unique opportunity to nurture conservation learning to a broad range of demographics. Some of our local children have never been on a boat or visited the islands before. Once on the island, they are kept busy building, planting, exploring, listening and observing – using their own natural skills and senses.

If you have a personal connection to a local school, or you wish to nurture the next generation of conservation discovery and leadership, we invite you to support this innovative education programme.

About us

Project Island Song is the name given to the restoration of the ancient dawn chorus of the Bay of Islands. Project Island Song is an ecological restoration project of an archipelago of island sanctuaries, known as Ipipiri, in the eastern Bay of Islands. After a number of years in operation and achieving significant goals which includes the eradication of pests from the islands, Project Island Song is now in the position to tackle longer term aims, such as the reintroduction of native species to the islands – literally bringing back the birdsong to the islands, note by note.
