Cape Sanctuary

What we exist for: 

One of the world's rarest shorebirds, a shore plover chick has been successfully bred at a Hawke's Bay sanctuary for the first time.

Cape Sanctuary general manager Rachel Ward said shore plovers were only found on "predator-free offshore islands".

There's only 250 left in the country.
