Those of you who have stayed in the bunkhouse when it is full will be aware of how difficult it can be to find space for your fresh food in one of the two fridges. We would like to provide a third upright fridge. If you have a suitable fridge or can help us to obtain one at a good price, please get in touch.

Clean, empty drinks bottles

The hihi nesting season is in full swing and Vix Franks, one of our hihi researchers, needs 40 to 60 500 - 600ml brown plastic bottles (ginger beer and L&P come in brown) OR clear plastic 500-600ml bottles.

They are for hihi feeders to be put near the nest sites to give the best chance possible for the chicks to make it. If you fancy searching your neighbours' recycling we’ll back you up that you aren’t totally destitute.
