Find Izzy The Tūī A New Home

Project 2016-09-15 14:42:03 +1200

Created by local designers Izzy has been watching over Wellington from her Ghuznee street perch for over 10 years. But her building is about to be demolished, so we're going to find her a new home! 

Forest & Bird is an expert in translocating native birds - just because Izzy is five feet tall we won't treat her any differently! You can help make a cosy new nest for Izzy at Forest & Bird's new offices this December. We want to make sure this iconic bird is protected for the enjoyment of all Welly residents and visitors to the capital. Any additional funds will be used to help Forest & Bird work to save Izzy's other feathered friends throughout New Zealand!

Thank you for your pledge to save Izzy. We are now more than 20% towards our target to find Izzy a new perch and anything you can do to share the message with friends, family and work colleagues would really make a difference!

Please share this link with as many people as you can www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/4816-find-izzy-the-tui-a-new-home

Izzy is finding it chilly in the basement - it's not a patch on her old perch...Help her to see the light of day again.
