Amid the pandemic Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne continues to transform Wellington, caring for translocated species and breathing life into our forests and skies.

Wildlife hasn’t noticed an upheaval over the last two years, but our main source of income has. Zealandia relies on visitation to fund our conservation work, but with people staying at home, visitation is low.

Your donation will help conserve and protect nature. It will go towards supplementary food and nest boxes for threatened species like hihi/stitchbird, maintaining the fence, weeding and planting, and translocating rare and threatened species to the sanctuary and ensure birdsong continues to reach into the suburbs.

The impact of your donation is far-reaching – conserving nature improves the lives of people, animals and the environment.
