Project Island Song is reliant on funders and sponsors to keep us on the path to achieving our vision. Thank you to all those who have contributed towards Project Island Song in various ways, including the provision of free travel for volunteers going to the islands, funding project work, sponsoring volunteer lunches on planting days and much more.
With your support we can bring the islands of Ipipiri alive again with the sound of native New Zealand birdsong.
