About Us

Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust is a partnership between:

  • Commercial operators
  • The community
  • Department of Conservation

To protect and enhance biodiversity and improve the visitor experience in Abel Tasman National Park. It is a Charitable Trust, formed in 2007 and registered with the NZ Charities Commission, and the Inland Revenue Department as a charity. It is separate from the Department of Conservation and commercial tourism operators in the Park, but will work closely with them and the local community, on local projects for local benefits.

About Abel Tasman National Park

At 22,530 hectares, this is New Zealandís smallest National Park. It is world famous for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, estuaries and native forests. But its native flora and fauna have suffered over the years, ravaged by fire, farming, logging, invasive weeds and predators. Without help, wildlife and habitat will continue to be lost.

The forests and beaches of Abel Tasman are once again filled with the birdsong that awakens and delights visitors.

Kia whakaoho te mauri o te Ata-hapara. Kia rongo, Kia Kite, Ki te reo koro tui o Te Tai tapu
