Why we should help?
The Southern NZ Dotterel is CRITICALLY ENDANGERED & one of the closest birds to EXTINCTION on the planet.
There is estimated to be just 126 individuals as of April 2023.
Supporting this cause will aid desperate pest control efforts in remote dotterel breeding habitats, helping to protect the birds when they are most vulnerable.
Rakiura/Stewart Island is the last refuge for these birds, but it is still not safe. Feral cats frequently predate on adult birds and their chicks. Additionally, it will help fund monitoring and research of the species.
So please show some love for our Southern Dotterel by sharing this with a friend or making a bid.
If you would still like to help the dotterel, you can purchase a dotterel print or any other print from Henry Grayson & 25% of the proceeds will go to this Southern Dotterel project. Henry has 16 NZ birds to choose from.
Protecting and restoring nature is needed more than ever
