Support Our Work

You can help us by sponsoring the work we do or adopting a penguin.

Donations from our adopt-a-penguin programme have contributed to many projects in the past.

 

For example, this year we had a permanent pool constructed in our rehabilitation facility for the penguins to swim in before they are released back into the wild. 

 

Due to the dramatic effect of Covid-19, our doors are currently closed to visitors but we have vital work to continue. This work involves caring for the penguins and continuing our long-term monitoring programme. We are 100% dependent on donations at the moment to continue our work. 

Our Sponsorship Options:

Online Adopt-a-penguin $100

This sponsorship will contribute towards our conservation and research programmes.

For this sponsorship you will receive a photograph and information about your adopted penguin and the colony, a map of the colony showing where your penguin nests, as well as an adoption certificate. All sent online to your inbox.

 

While the New Zealand Postshops are closed we cannot post penguin soft toys internationally, however, if you are in New Zealand and wish to, you can purchase one of the following:

Habitat sponsorship $50

We look after the penguins’ habitat and provide them with nesting boxes to breed in. This sponsorship helps us build and establish a nest box for a penguin pair which will improve their safety and increase their chances of becoming successful breeders. 

For this sponsorship you will receive a thank-you letter, a photo of the penguins, a penguin toy and basic information about the penguins and colony.

 

Research sponsorship $100

Our research helps us understand more about the penguins and means we are better able to protect them. We use microchips to identify the penguins and datalogging devices to track their movements at sea. This sponsorship will help us continue our research and purchase some equipment to further help us track the penguins’ movements.

For this sponsorship you will receive a thank-you letter, a photo of the penguins, a penguin toy and information about the research programme.
