Here at Flying Kiwi we are always asking ourselves...how can we make a difference? To our travellers experience and to the world we live in. We're passionate about New Zealand and we want to ensure that it stays as beautiful and un-touched by humans and pests as possible. With that in mind the obvious choice to concentrate our efforts fell on our backdoor step, the top of the South Island and home to Flying Kiwi - the Abel Tasman National Park.
The Abel Tasman National Park is 22,530 hectares, and is New Zealand’s smallest National Park. World famous for its golden beaches, granite cliffs, estuaries and native forests. Sadly though, its native flora and fauna have suffered over the years, ravaged by fire, farming, logging, invasive weeds and predators. Without help, wildlife and habitat will continue to be lost.
Flying Kiwi is an Associate Member of the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and will match all travellers optional $10 donation towards this worthy cause. We also make it possible for travellers to volunteer their time and get involved with environmental projects such as site preparation and the clearing of weeds as well as planting knew trees, thereby having a positive impact on our environment.
The aim of the Abel Tasman Birdsong is to protect and enhance biodiversity and improve the visitor experience in Abel Tasman National Park. It is a Charitable Trust, formed in 2007 and its vision is that the forests and beaches of the Abel Tasman National Park are once again filled with the birdsong that awakens and delights visitors.
