Event description

We invite you to a decadent evening of conservation and art.ย 

To further support the ongoing work Sanctuary Mountainยฎย Maungatautari is doing to carry out a habitat trial for kฤkฤpล inย the protected forest on Maungatautari.

We have come a long way, but there is still work to be done!


Event Details

Where: Sir Don Rowlands Centre at Mighty River Domainย 

When: Wednesday, June 5th, 2024ย 

Time: 6 pm - 11 pm

Set at a stunning location, by the edge of lake Karฤpiro, with beautiful Maungatautari as our backdrop, we invite you to join us for an evening of exquisite cuisine, stimulatingย entertainment and stories told first about trailblazing kฤkฤpล and the many other unique species that live in the protected forest and wetland habitats of Maungatautari, told firsthand by our guest speakers. Not only will your senses be awakened by our carefully crafted three-course meal, but your eyes will feast on the incredible pieces of art that will beย available for purchase during our exclusive live auction.


Join us on this conservation journey to keepย Maungatautari a safe, pest-free environment whereย endangered species, including kiwi and kฤkฤpล canย thrive on the mainland!

Your ticket purchase and the proceeds from the art auction directly contribute to the ongoing conservation efforts on the Maunga.

The story so farโ€ฆ

Mid 2022, Sanctuary Mountainยฎ Maungatautari hosted anย inaugural Gala Dinner to assist in funding a kฤkฤpล barrierย to be added to the existing Xcluderยฎ pest-proof fence.
Completion of this mahi and our partnership with Ngฤiย Tahu and the Department of Conservationโ€™s Kฤkฤpลย Recovery team, enabled the historic arrival of kฤkฤpล to
Maungatautari in July and September 2023. This markedย the first time kฤkฤpล had lived on mainland New Zealand inย close to 40 years; a major milestone in the journey of
kฤkฤpล recovery.

Since then, we have learned from these manu every day!ย To keep these highly intelligent and curious birds safelyย inside the sanctuaryโ€™s pest-proof fence has takenย dedication to monitoring, innovative thinking, explorationย of new technologies and strong partnerships.

The next chapterโ€ฆ

This yearโ€™s gala is focusing on funding some of the biggerย challenges we have now, such as boundary vegetationย trimming, daily monitoring of birds and being foreverย vigilant of the integrity of the fence, to name just a few. Theย work has only just begun!
