Program Overview

Program Description:

The Pupu Rangi Nature Sanctuary is a not-for-profit organization that protects a number of forests on the Kauri Coast in the North of New Zealand. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about the current conservation issues facing the native New Zealand forests ad birds and to learn the skills to perform a number of conservation activities at a professional level.

Volunteers will work in areas closed to the public and which includes a cloud rainforest, a park with kiwi and thousand year old kauri trees, or a forest which is home to the rare kokako bird.

We host small groups of no more than 8 volunteers and in the free time we go on night safaris looking for kiwi or on sightseeing trips around the region. Our visitors Also get the chance to experience off-grid living that aims to be as sustainable as possible.

Long term stays and internships are also available.
