The Mōhua Charitable Trust


Please help us save the threatened Mōhua, even a little will go a long way!

Main image

The mōhua is a threatened species endemic to the South Island of New Zealand. It is particularly vulnerable to rats and stoats. Predator plagues caused by high levels of seed production ('beech mast') put mōhua at risk of population crashes leading to local extinction.

The Mōhua Charitable Trust needs funding to undertake conservation efforts such as translocations

to predator free islands to ensure these unique birds are safe.

The aim of the Mōhua Charitable Trust is to get mōhua and other native fauna populations back to the numbers once found in New Zealand's native forests.

More about us

to promote education about native birds in New Zealand and their preservation; to provide funding for the discovery, collection, relocation and rehabilitation of native birds including the Mōhua.

The aim is to get Mōhua and other native bird populations back to the numbers once found in New Zealand's native forests.
