Dear Friend

You, and many wonderful people like you, are a vital link in the fence that protects Maungatautari. Without the ongoing support of people like you the work that Maungatautari does simply could not happen!

Thanks to that support it’s been a big year for the Maunga with lots of exciting things happening! This month we received the first 15 of 40 kokako to be re-introduced to the Maunga after an absence of some 35 years. This is a wonderful achievement funded entirely by donations from our supporters. We have also had two of our takahe relocated to Motutapu Island, kiwi to other parts of the country and lots of breeding and nesting taking place from tuatara’s through to kiwi.

We have recently been given the challenging news that one of our key funders has been forced to reduce our funding for the next year. This will effect our ability to cover our day-to-day costs and to protect our endangered wildlife. Can you help us now?

The Maungatautari project is the largest pest-proof fenced project in the world and is the largest conservation island on mainland New Zealand. It costs over $70,000 to undertake a secure species re-introduction and the staff and material input we need to maintain our fence and sanctuary is no easy financial feat. A donation of $30 or even $50 will immediately help us to continue with the vital work we do. We are also asking our supporters to consider making a long term commitment and join our very special “Kaitiaki” group, our Guardians that contribute a small amount monthly, which would enable us to be able forecast our funds for future projects and plan for further re-introductions of species.(Please note that if you were an annual donor in the past, the annual donation letter has now been replaced with the ongoing appeals).
