A Rare Bird coming up for twitchers, conservationists and theatre enthusiasts! 

Forest & Bird is excited to announce that Elisabeth Easther is bringing her one-woman show, A Rare Bird - the story of conservation pioneer Perrine Moncrieff - to Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington on Friday 28 July. 

Join us for an evening of theatre and kai as we celebrate 100 years of Forest & Bird! 

Ahead of her time and a true force of nature, Perrine Moncrieff fought tirelessly to protect Aotearoa's wildlife. She was a trailblazer in many fields, but it was when she recognised the connection between birds, forests and human survival that her efforts really took flight, including writing the classic 1925 field guide, New Zealand Birds and How to Identify Them

Elisabeth's solo show, A Rare Bird, explores the audacious exploits of a woman and reveals the vital role Moncrieff played in helping to conserve the flora and fauna of Aotearoa.

We hope to see you there!
