Riding Tour Aotearoa for the Wildlife Hospital (Dunedin)

$6,202 donated

I am riding the length of Aotearoa (3000km) on a mountain bike to raise funds that will save the lives of threatened native species.


It am riding the Tour Aotearoa in February-March 2020. My start date is 18th February at 8.30am. The journey starts at Cape Reinga at the very northern most tip of Te-Ika-a-Maui (North Island) and finishes 3000km later at the southern tip of Te Waipounamu (South Island). I am inspired by the challenge of the Tour Aotearoa to raise funds for my chosen charity, the Wildlife Hospital, Dunedin. The Wildlife Hospital is a veterinary facility specialising in the treatment of New Zealand’s native species. It receives sick and injured animals, provides diagnosis and triage, treatment, rehabilitation and recovery to ensure successful release. I have chosen this charity because it provides the only such expert care for sick and injured native species in the South Island. Much work and energy is being invested by conservation heroes to protect native species from the many threats that they face, but much less energy is invested in the equally important work of saving individual animals that become sick or have been seriously injured. Successful treatment of individual animals is critical to species survival. The Wildlife Hospital is funded entirely by donations and I want to generate significant funding to support this wonderful cause.
