Join our volunteer working programme at "The Penguin Shed" in Rangihaeata on most Monday mornings. To find out what is planned for the next meeting, email us using the Contact page.

 

We build penguin nesting boxes, rat trap tunnels and we occasionally need help installing nesting boxes. The Penguin Shed is open Monday mornings 9.30 - 11.30 am.

 

Possible future work includes fencing and revegetation of penguin nesting sites.
