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.
