Our vision is to bring back the birdsong to the Routeburn and Dart Valleys by creating an inland sanctuary in them. We aim to establish opportunities for business and the public to contribute to funding and implementing biodiversity gains and appreciation in these valleys. We currently focus on the yellowed (mohua), rock wren (piwauwau) and are exploring options for blue duck (whio), kiwi and kaka.
