Volunteer for wildlife conservation work
Helping us to bring back the birdsong to the islands of Ipipiri, note by note.
Without the commitment of our strong volunteer base Project Island Song would not have achieved what is has done to date. As we look to the future we are aware how important that volunteer component is to our ongoing success.
Adopt a tree
We are delighted to offer a new way to be part of Project Island Song – and a great gift idea. Each year we plant a great many trees, from primary plants that are known as “colonising plants”, such as kanuka, Manuka and cabbage tree through to the great canopy trees that make up the ancient forests, such as kauri, totara and rimu.
Adopt a rat trap
Adopting a rat trap is a practical way to help us to keep the islands pest free. An annual donation of $50 per year will pay for a year’s servicing of one of the 450 trap stations we have on the mainland to protect the islands: you will receive an electronic certificate with the trap’s GPS coordinates and you can also monitor your trap catches online.
Leave a gift in your will
Close your eyes and imagine the Bay of Islands you want to see. With a gift to Project Island Song in your will, we can help your vision come true…
Project Island Song is an ecological restoration project in the islands of Ipipiri in the eastern Bay of Islands. They are coming alive with birdsong, regenerating forests and increasing biodiversity. Locals and visitors can enjoy a unique year-round experience of Northland's subtropical climate, spectacular scenery and natural heritage.
