Coming soon. Voting begins Monday 3rd November.

Vote for your favourite New Zealand seabird. Our seabirds are sensational and New Zealand is a seabird superpower. More than one-third of the world’s seabird species spend at least part of their lives above or on New Zealand waters. Thirty-six of those only breed here. But tragically more than half of those are threatened with extinction. Forest & Bird is New Zealand’s leading nature conservation organisation. We’re a not-for-profit working to protect seabirds in many ways and we need your help. To see what we are doing for our seabirds click here. The Seabird of the Year poll is supported by Heritage Expeditions.
