Who will fly to victory?

Aotearoa New Zealand has the most amazing native wildlife! But right now, 80% of our birds (and 100% of our bats) are in trouble. Climate change and habitat destruction are big threats to all our native species. If we protect and restore our rivers, forests, oceans, and climate, we can bring back our native wildlife!

Show your love for incredible native species by casting your vote in Te Manu Rongonui o te Tau/Bird of the Year!

Voting is open from 18-31 October 2021.
