Don't eat the pigeons, save them to save the forest. Your donations go directly to predator control in Waipoua to increase kukupa survival.
There is no bush without birds, no birds without bush. The dire state of bird life in our most important kauri sanctuary, Waipoua Forest, is a measure of how close we are to losing this national treasure. The Waipoua Forest Trust seek your donations to fund a concerted, sustained predator control campaign that will have flocks of kukupa back in this amazing place
More about us
Waipoua Forest is an advocate for kauri, its health and capacity to survive long enough for another generation of 2,000 year old trees to grow and thrive. We have developed a new forest of 250 hectares alongside the Waipoua Forest Sanctuary, planted with seedlings of the surviving great trees in a world leading restoration programme.
Public support is essential for this project as Kauri will not survive as long as it depends solely on government institutions.
