Sponsorship Request

Sponsorship Request

Motuihe Trust requires funding to enable island operations such as track construction/maintenance, biodiversity monitoring (reptile or Kiwi), weeding, guiding, nursery irrigation or equipment, plant propagation, planting and equipment maintenance.  The Trust has no fixed income source and relies on grants, donations and a small amount of revenue generated from kiosk operations.  

We would like to invite interested sponsors to support one or more of the many programmes below:

Fluttering Shearwaters (link): 

[Fluttering shearwater Birdsong- click on ‘Sounds‘ link)

For the first time in 60 years, Fluttering Shearwaters are nesting on one of our headlands – attracted by a solar powered sound system which plays seabird calls at night.

We are seeking a sponsor to enable us to put in place a more structured programme to nurture our fledgling population and to make sure the birds thrive. Our aim is to build a permanent colony of shearwaters who return to our island every year to have their chicks.

Other projects coming up:
- Little blue penguins
- Electric 4-wheel drive
- Wetland birds project
- Care and monitoring of NZ Dotterals
