Here is a summary of the Wingspan Centre and the great work they do.
"From small beginnings and registered as a Charitable Trust in 1992, Wingspan is the leading education, research and conservation organisation for birds of prey, in New Zealand. At Wingspan’s core is a commitment to the conservation of the threatened ‘Kārearea’ New Zealand falcon. As well as working with the morepork (ruru), swamp harrier (kahu) and barn owls.
Wingspan supports wild populations directly by releasing captive bred falcons and rehabilitating injured wild birds. Through research and advocacy, Wingspan also supports long-term sustainable conservation action by identifying the reasons for the decline in wild populations and promoting action to reverse this.
The Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre is a place where people can visit and see birds of prey up close during interactive flying displays, hosted by the country’s leading experts. The displays showcase the spectacular flying skills of these amazing birds and are a unique educational experience enjoyed by children and adults alike."
