Walk for Wildlife

Orokonui Ecosanctuary - Te Korowai o Mihiwaka —

On Saturday 27 April at 10am Go Wild on a fascinating 12km hike through the beautiful Orokonui Ecosanctuary forest and estuary to raise funds towards food for Takahē and Kākā.

This fundraiser will help the Ecosanctuary to overcome their challenge of funding the supplementary food bill of $9000/year.

You may well think - all that land surely there would be enough food - but the Ecosanctuary has regenerating coastal forest. It can provide some of the bird food needs but they still need supplements until the forest matures and can provide the diversity and variety of food required.
