Many of New Zealand's native birds are in crisis. About 75% of land birds and 90% of seabirds are either threatened or at risk of extinction. Their habitats are being destroyed or degraded, and seabirds are being caught by the commercial fishing industry . Predators like stoats, possums, and rats eat their eggs, and kill young birds, and even adults. Your donation will be used to get greater protection for the birds you love by changing laws, challenging damaging practices that destroy their homes, carrying out practical restoration projects to build populations, and campaigning for more Government spending on conservation.
