The Problem

The Whanganui Bird Rescue is a rehabilitation facility that takes patients from the one of four wildlife hospitals in New Zealand and prepares them for release. They also educate the public on wildlife and conservation, however the place has been left with a shortage of funding and volunteers in recent years. We want to see the place get repaired, cleaned up, and have a regular stream of volunteers from the community to improve the facility overall.

Our Plan

As Massey students we plan to use the wildlife club to motivate as many students as possible to volunteer time fixing and cleaning. From there we want to plant native trees to attract more local fauna, and reach out to other local teams to find more involvement and reach out to more groups for education.
