Dedicated to the protection of our forest and native wildlife, from kiwi to kokako. Join us to help save NZ's iconic species!

Pukaha Mount Bruce has 942 hectares of untouched native forest. Together with our local regional councils and volunteers we are restoring the forest, bringing back the bird song and balance to our land.

A short drive from Masterton, we welcome you to walk around and see conservation in action. From kiwi chicks being raised in the kiwi house where Manukura, our white kiwi lives- to hearing the haunting melody of wild kokako as you walk our look out track.

50 years ago our forest was almost silent, now thanks to amazing supporters such as yourself the forest is alive and singing. Now we just need to keep ensuring the forest stays safe.

Your donation today will go towards the continuous restoration of our forest, this includes not only buying/ monitoring the traps, but also checking on our wild kiwi population.

Just this year alone, our lead kiwi ranger is monitoring 12 kiwi out in the forest, with one more soon ready for release. We will add updates on our kiwi and other birds from the bush as we go!
