Animal Conservation project in a natural reserve for volunteers to assist in protecting New Zealand’s amazing plant &wildlife
New Zealand is home to a number of birds and plants that can be found nowhere else in the world! The kiwi bird, probably the most well-known native New Zealand bird, is continually under threat from invasive predators like stoats, possums, pigs and other predators. An average of 27 kiwi birds are killed EVERY WEEK - that’s a population decline of around 1,400 Kiwi every year. To think that just 100 years ago the kiwi bird numbered in the millions and that it could disappear from New Zealand shores in this lifetime is shocking. Without the assistance of conservationist and volunteers it is likely this amazing bid would become extinct. This is just one example of how New Zealand’s natural habitat is under threat.
Our NZ environmental group offers conservation projects so working holiday makers can assist in protecting New Zealand’s amazing plant &wildlife. Volunteers will assist in the conservation of native bird, animal and plant life to ensure the survival of New Zealand’s native species.

Extra activities while on the project
There is a number of really awesome tracks around the area to take advantage of. The tracks lead to a lot of really amazing scenery like waterfalls and rock formations. There are opportunities for horse treks and mountain bikes as well. As the Coromandel are is famous for its beaches in the summer months you can also visit some on NZ most beautiful beaches.
It’s such a great feeling, to go out in the bush and with my own hands do work that will aid the survival of these plants and animals.
