The NZ Fairy Tern

Bennetts of Mangawhai is a long term supporter of the Fairy Tern Trust and we are passionate about the conservation work being done in our backyard.

The Fairy Tern is NZ’s most endangered bird with less than 40 birds remaining. The breeding areas of the Fairy Tern have been under threat by predators and urban development for many years but the local community has worked tirelessly to support DoC in protecting these special little birds.

By purchasing these items, you are helping the Trust to continue the excellent work they do in our community.

Since launching the Fairy Tern greeting cards in 2019, we have donated over $23,000 to the NZ Fairy Tern Trust!

Fairy Tern News

November 30, 2023

Great News!!

We have 3 nests and 6 eggs at Mangawhai. The birds that deserted their nest in the recent storm have re-nested after only 6 days.

There are 3 eggs incubating at Auckland Zoo and they will begin the captive breeding program for this season - one egg is from Papakanui.

Rangers have been kept very busy replacing hazing fences after they were buried by strong winds, plus monitoring traps and signs of new nests.

It's exciting times!!
