Testimonial

Testimonial

The Nature Sanctuary is a very special place, that attracts like-minded people from all corners of the world. Volunteering at the Sanctuary was a perfect post-university trip for me, and opened my eyes to alternative ways of living, the importance of conservation, and the beauty of New Zealand.

Highlights

Highlights

Volunteering at the sanctuary provides an opportunity for reconnecting with our natural surroundings. Away from the distractions of modern life, we learn to observe and listen to the forest, hear the songs of birds, or notice the gradual movement of stars along the night sky.

Location

Location

The project is located in the Northland region of New Zealand, amongst the Native Kauri forests. Northland’s many nature reserves shelter the most spectacular remnants of the ancient kauri forests that once blanketed the top of the country. The remaining giant trees are an awe-inspiring sight and one of the nation’s treasures.

Free Time

There are many activities arranged during your free time, including night safaris looking for wild kiwi birds, walking deep in the forest to visit the glowworms that live near the waterfalls, heading to the lakes or beach for some swimming, or visiting the amazing 2000 year old Tane Mahuta, the oldest and biggest tree in New Zealand.
