For over 30 years, Forest & Bird’s Kiwi Conservation Club | Hakuturi Toa (KCC) has been connecting Kiwi kids to New Zealand’s amazing wildlife and wild places.
KCC now has over 5,000 members throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. Join in the fun and help us get the next generation protecting our wildlife and wild places.
Starting at just $24/year, members receive:
- Our quarterly Wild Things magazine. The magazines are aimed at ages 5-13 years and make topics like wild rivers, marine reserves and worms understandable, engaging and fun using a range of articles and activities. Each issue also contains calls-to-action, so that kids and families can use their hands, eyes, and voice to make a real difference for nature.
- The opportunity to go on KCC Adventures anywhere in the country. In most places around New Zealand, volunteer coordinators (KCOs) arrange outings/meet-ups for members to explore their local beaches, forests and everywhere in between. Some clubs also get involved in local conservation projects like tree planting, creating lizard gardens or making nesting boxes for little blue penguins. Find out where your closest branches are HERE.
- Entry to our various nationwide challenges, projects and competitions; to be a Youth Reporter on our blog; and to maybe even get published in Wild Things!

$30 Gift Pack Membership options
We have two gift pack options – one for new members and one for renewing members. These can be selected on the ‘Join us’ or ‘Renew’ pages.
Both include the $24 base membership (Wild Things magazine in the post 4 times a year, newsletters and ability to attend KCC events around the country) but also receive a physical gift pack in the post.

Gift membership voucher
We also now have the option to purchase a membership voucher as a gift through the Forest & Bird shop
You receive a digital certificate/voucher that you can gift by email or print out, and then the caregiver can sign up with all the details later on. It is a $30 membership, so the physical gift pack of goodies will be posted once the caregiver redeems the voucher and the membership is set up.
If you have been gifted a membership voucher the link to redeem it is embedded in the certificate, and is also in the cover email. If you have any issues redeeming the voucher please contact the membership team on email@example.com or 0800 200 064
We have a special bulk offer for schools and community groups who want to take it up too – 30 copies of the magazine each quarter for just $100/year!
Additional copies of Wild Things for individual memberships
If you want to receive more than 1 copy of the magazine each quarter, you can also add additional magazines onto your membership, for an additional $5 per extra copy – eg. if you wanted 3 copies of the magazine each quarter, the membership would be $34/year.
