Logo for Marlborough Falcon Conservation Trust Marlborough Falcon Conservation Trust

The Marlborough Falcon Trust was established in late 2008 by passionate individuals who realised that acting now we could positively change the outcome in the survival of our last remaining endemic bird of prey, the kārearea. Our goals are threefold - to rehabilitate sick and injured karearea and return them to the wild - educate the public through our Education and Advocacy programme on the importance of acting now to save this species from persecution - to care for and breed young for release from those karearea that can’t survive on their own in the wild. The Trust itself is comprised of a small but dedicated group of volunteers. Our team includes a fulltime aviary manager in working with many Marlborough clubs, groups and individuals who donate their time and expertise. Friends and family are also conscripted from time to time. We currently have five trustees who give their time.
