Become a Sponsor

Forest & Bird is the preeminent nature conservation charity in New Zealand and has been working to protect our unique native fauna and flora for almost a century.

Across the country, we are involved in the protection of some of our country’s most stunning and fragile areas which are home to iconic species. Without Forest & Bird these unique and important areas would be lost for future generations. 

Sponsoring Forest & Bird brings many benefits both to your organisation and to the many conservation projects Forest & Bird manages. You will be helping maximise the effectiveness of our campaigns and create awareness that we simply couldn’t do on our own. You will be supporting our volunteers as they deliver vital conservation projects across New Zealand.

The challenges we face as we work to protect our beautiful, fragile land are immense but together we can ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy the unique fauna and flora of Aotearoa. Together we can make a difference. 

Through a mutually beneficial sponsorship agreement we are looking not only for financial support, but opportunities to increase our membership, promote our campaigns and increase our income through new opportunities.

Join with us and help save New Zealand's unique natural environment for future generations.
