Kakaruia Black Robin

Conservation status
In serious trouble

This bird once eyeballed extinction but has since made an almighty comeback. Once it had five birds to its name, now it numbers 250 birds. So all of today's kakaruia are descendants of the last breeding pair, Old Blue (f) and Old Yellow (m). This amazing turn-around modeled new fostering programmes to save other endangered birds around the world.

Honeywrap was inspired by nature and a passion for making a difference by reducing the amount of plastic on the planet.   Each beeswax wrap is made in NZ from GOTS certified organic cotton - they're reusable and eco-friendly and offer a natural alternative to plastic food wrap.  

We love partnering with charities and supporting the awesome work that they do and are very excited about our latest collaboration with Forest and Bird, for Bird of the Year.  Our Bird of the Year 2019 limited edition Large Honeywrap features five of our endangered birds with $1 from each sale supporting Forest and Bird and the work they do protecting, restoring and defending New Zealand’s precious wildlife and wild places.
