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 what events have happened in the past HERE.
