We are looking for you if you are the person who can turn their hand to anything and everything that needs mending, sorting or offering options that will work better. NZBR has grown over the past 18 months to an internationally recognised wild bird rehabilitation facility. Our bird care is super but we lack the skills to mend the hospital cage doors, finish wood working projects, and other smaller (and some larger) projects. There is the ruru habitat that is waiting for your skills to help finish it so we have a safe place for our beautiful native owls to finish growing or healing. The seabird unit has grown in concept from a converted shed to a complex, or would be once finished! We need help! We offer great folks to work with, awesome patients to see, and boundless enthusiasm and passion for our birds.
