Sustainability Spotlight: New Zealand Conservation Trust

The New Zealand Conservation Trust works for protect and advocate for New Zealand’s unique taonga (native species) through conservation, education and collaboration. 

Based at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve in Christchurch, a group interested in preservation of flora and fauna of particular significance to New Zealand formed the Willowbank Wildlife Trust in 1980. In 1991, the Trust Deed was amended and became known as the New Zealand Conservation Trust in 1994. Their base at Willowbank has various facilities for Kiwi breeding and display.

As they do not receive Government funding, they rely on membership, sponsorship and donations to continue their important conservation work. You can also volunteer with their trapline days.

During 2021, NZCT volunteers in Carlyle, Cass, Craigieburn and Styx caught over 400 predators.
