Join the Penguin Coffee Club
Who’s addicted to coffee but could give up one cup per week? Could you? If so, maybe you’d consider joining our Hoiho Supporters’ Group.
Since 2003, the Department of Conservation (DOC) has generously supported the Trust’s field operations through grants primarily to employ our field team. In recent years DOC itself has had to adapt to its own budget limitations to deliver conservation in New Zealand and we think you would agree DOC is underfunded for this core work of helping keep NZ green and clean.
The DOC Community Fund (previously called Biodiversity Condition and Advice Fund and more recently, Community Conservation Partnership Fund) is insufficient to meet the demands of the communities who are also delivering core conservation effort throughout New Zealand. The number of community groups is increasing and the number of projects is also increasing.
The Trust believes we need to become financially independent of funding sources such as grants. As part of our plan to achieve this, we now remind you about our monthly automatic payment scheme.
Donate the cost of just one cup of coffee ($5) per week and help us gain a level of financial independence!
We encourage you to join this group, or ask a family member or friend to join, and help the Trust continue to protect our endangered hoiho.
