Endangered Wildlife Conservation

Over 90% of New Zealand's wetlands have been drained or filled in. We need your support in raising $1.25m to ensure that the 37 hectare Matuku Link is allowed to survive and prosper in the hands of the Kiwi public.

This beautiful piece of land represents the last large forested block in Auckland's Bethell's valley and is home to many rare wetland species.

With your help, we can ensure that local flora and fauna will remain protected, as well as allowing access for students, tourists and nature lovers.

$300,000 has already been pledged by the Nature Heritage Fund, with a further $450,000 by the Native Forest Restoration Trust. The remaining $1.25m needs to be raised before the land will go to market on October 27th.

    Just in case you need a little bit extra :) I visited Matuku Reserve recently and was really impressed. I've never heard so many tui! I hope that getting the Link allows more wildlife to thrive, and more people to enjoy it.

The Matuku Link Trust has been set up by the founders of Ark in the Park and the Native Forest Restoration Trust. Led by Dr John Sumich and trustees Geoff Davidson, John Staniland and Chad Wilkie, we are working towards saving this vital piece of New Zealand land. We are also delighted to have Sir Bob Harvey as our patron.

“We absolutely need more wetlands.”
“Good Luck”
“Will be an addition to help strengthen an important area and a treasure proudly to keep for generations.”
“What a wonderful addition to Matuku and the Arc....can only be a good thing for regeneration of our NZ birds - well done everyone for making this important and achievable.”
“A truly valuable piece of land, I hope this campaign is successful.”
“Best wishes for the purchase”
“This is a fantastic idea and I really hope there are enough funds to purchase the land. NZ's environment and the wildlife that lives in our forests has really not fared well over the last 150 years or so, and it's wonderful to think that this could help be a very positive step in the right direction. All the best!”
“Hope the other funding sources come through, and this can go ahead. Kia kaha!”
“I'll support any give a little land purchase that is being bought and returned to the public and conservation. Hope the NZ public rally and do it all again.”
“Good luck, had no idea this was even happening. :)”
