Birds originating from Zealandia can sometimes be observed far beyond our fence; this dispersal is known as the “halo effect”. You can help us track the range of our bird species by sending in reports of your sightings.

Reports are used by Zealandia, Forest & Bird, and Department of Conservation researchers. All personal information is kept in confidence but may be used to contact you for more information about the sighting.
