The Fiordland Conservation Trust

Welcome to the Fiordland Conservation Trust, est. 2007

The Fiordland Conservation Trust is a community-driven initiative supporting conservation projects in Fiordland, Southland and New Zealand's Sub-Antarctic Islands. 

The conservation jigsaw puzzle

Each project is a jigsaw piece that fits properly into the big picture, a picture that is turning from a flat 2 dimensional postcard picture into a 3D future of sounds, movement, footprints - tieke, mohua, kakaruai, pateke, whio, kakapo, pekapeka-tou-roa, oligosoma pikitanga - just some of the birds, bats and skinks that are no longer a fragment of a guiltily ignorant past but are a vibrant part of a regenerating and sustainable future.
