Birds NZ Youth Camps

Birds New Zealand’s “Youth Camps” are a fantastic opportunity for young people to get a hands-on experience and develop skills in bird ecology!

The next camp will be held from 5-11 October 2019 on the Waikato River. Read more here or contact Chelsea Ralls or Ian Southey 

If you are a young birder, make sure you check out Young Birders NZ or follow them on twitter.
