The Tara Iti is one of Aoteoroa's rarest and most threatened species. This critically endangered bird has only 16 breeding pairs left in New Zealand, with only 12 pairs surviving on beaches between Whangarei and Auckland. The Endangered Species Foundation has identified tara iti, the New Zealand Fairy Tern in it's Top Ten Most Endangered Species List.
We've partnered with the Endangered Species Foundation to help raise awareness about the threats to this bird in hopes we can help it's survival.
