Become a ZEALANDIA Member and help us to save New Zealand’s rare and endangered native wildlife, while supporting a 500-year vision to restore Wellington’s natural heritage.

With help from our Members, we have so far been able to transfer dozens of native species and are able to continue providing a safe haven for our special native flora and fauna. The work we do is making a huge impact on Wellington, with species such as the Tūi, Kererū and Kākā now common sights in Wellington, where they were once effectively extinct.
