Help grow and plant endangered Ngutukākā  - Kākābeak

Once there were less than 100 Ngutukākā, (also known as kākābeak), left in the wild. Now, thanks to the help of a small group of passionate, dedicated people on the East Coast, over 800 species were planted last year.


We need your help to fund more plantings, engage marae and kura / schools, and share the traditions of this taonga species so people can be educated on how best to grow, care for and protect ngutukākā.

For just $50 - much less than the price of a dozen red roses - you can plant five ngutukākā. 

We are aiming to raise $20,000 which would plant 2,000 ngutukākā. Your donation will help plant more of these treasured plants and in return you will receive a beautiful Valentine’s e-card to gift to someone you love.
