Sirocco is Coming!

Maungatautari is the only place in New Zealand to host Sirocco this year.
The world famous kakapo is due to arrive at Maungatautari. MEIT is gearing up for visitors from all over the North Island (and further afield) wanting to see this living legend. Sirocco is so popular he previously sold out at other sanctuaries.

People are needed to help during Sirocco's stay. If you are interested in taking part in this exciting project, you can download a draft job description from website www.maungatrust.org.

If you are not currently a volunteer, you could fill in the Sirocco Volunteer Response Form and send it to our volunteer co-ordinator Ally Tairi (ally@maungatrust.org), or for further information, call her on 07 823 7477.

 If you can’t give up your time to volunteer, visit our website and keep an eye on facebook/savingmaungatautari for information. Better still come and see Sirocco for yourself!
