The Endangered Species Foundation is a registered charitable organisation supporting high-priority conservation projects that protect New Zealand’s most vulnerable indigenous species and habitats from extinction. We aim to save the 'Rarest of the Rare'. Here are some of the submissions we make ourselves, and those we support from others to protect Aotearoa's most endangered species.
