For the wellbeing of the chicks, we ask that noise levels are kept low and no photos are taken during the viewing sessions.

All proceeds are directly donated to Kākāpō Recovery Programme to help ensure the survival of these precious chicks.

Please meet at 33 Don Street, Cue on Don building (in front of large umbrella).

Do you own birds or chickens?
If you have pet birds or chickens, please ensure you shower before coming to the viewing and do not handle your birds in the hours leading up to the viewing. Diseases can spread very easily and we want to ensure the health and safety of these precious chicks.
