Help us to help the South Island kōkako. Time is running out to save this species from extinction.


The Trust is exploring the possibility of launching one or two 'signature surveys'.  First we need to determine the most likely locations and then we'll put together a plan for the field work, which could be in Spring 2018 or Autumn 2019.  If you could sponsor or support such a survey to find the South Island kōkako, we'd love to hear from you.  Please contact the Trust for further information.


You can help us by making a fee-free donation direct to the Trust bank account:

South Island Kōkako Charitable Trust 03 1599 0413403 00 - please include your name and the word ‘donation’ in the reference boxes and drop us an email so that we can thank you and provide a receipt.

Or you can donate using a credit card via our Givealittle page.

Your support is greatly appreciated - every little bit helps!
