Support the Ark

Without the generosity of donations from the Ark’s supporters and funders, none of our work at the Ark would be possible. From buying peanut butter to attract pests to traps, to searching for and protecting kōkako nests, there is always a need for support from the community.

There are a range of ways to show your support, from gifting regular donations, to donating your time as a volunteer – check out our Get Involved page!

There are a variety of ways to support the Ark:

  • A direct donation to support our work
  • Show your support with a t-shirt
  • Donate or discount materials

Donate to the Ark

Wanting to donate to the Ark, but not ready for a long term commitment? That’s fine! Donations of any size are truly appreciated by the Ark team and our wildlife.

Donations can be made through the Forest & Bird website. All donations gifted through the Ark in the Park page will come straight to the Ark, to support our work in the Waitākere Ranges.

Show your support

Want to show your support proudly? Great news – you can grab an Ark in the Park t-shirt here.

If you’re a digital artist and would like to donate a new design, get in contact with the Ark team as we would love to hear from you.

Donate materials

Prefer to support the Ark in a more tangible manner? We are often on the look out for different materials, from vanilla essence for lures to red food dye to monitor rat presence by catching them red ‘handed’.

Please get in touch if you would like to offer your support through the donation of materials, or if your business is able to offer a discount for field supplies such as gardening gloves.

Ark in the Park is located in the Waitākere Ranges, which are currently closed to minimise the spread of kauri dieback disease.
