Vote for your favourite New Zealand bird.
Our native birds are unique – more than half of our land birds are found nowhere else in the world and one-third of the world’s seabirds spend a large part of their lives in New Zealand waters.
Tragically, many of them are threatened with extinction. Much of their habitat has been destroyed and introduced mammalian predators such as stoats, cats, possums and rats prey on eggs, young birds and adults. They also and compete with our native birds for food and habitat.
Forest & Bird is New Zealand’s leading nature conservation organisation. We’re a not-for-profit working to protect birds in many ways and we need your help. Since our formation in 1923, we have played a vital role in helping to turn around the precarious situation of many of our native plants and animals – through community-driven predator control and advocacy work.
Voting closes at 5pm on Sunday October 25th.
