Feeding and husbandry of critically endangered shore birds in our captive breeding programme.
Cape Sanctuary is New Zealand’s largest privately owned and operated, predator-fenced mainland wildlife sanctuary.
Spanning over 2500ha, a variety of diverse landscapes and habitats, and home to re-established endangered species, the sanctuary is an amazing project to be a part of.
Our ethos is conservation in a multi-use landscape—how to we achieve conservation success while working hand in hand with agriculture, forestry, recreation and tourism?
Community involvement is essential to the success of the sanctuary—with private landowners, local iwi and hāpū, government and volunteers all working together.
Our volunteer rotations have been developed to offer those wanting to work with endangered species, learn the ropes of conservation, stay fit, gain work experience, or just have fun in the outdoors with a bunch of like-minded people!
Daily commitment, 8am start, 3 hours per shift.
Must be willing to have fun with a team.
