Fairy Tern | Tara-Iti | CardRegular price $8.00 Save $-8.00
English Artist Hannah Dale has created this beautiful card for Bennetts of Mangawhai of our endangered Fairy Tern - Tara-iti. $4.95 from the sale of every card goes to support vital funding to save this little bird which is our country's rarest bird.
Breeding is limited to four regular sites: Waipu, Mangawhai, Pakiri and the South Kaipara Head. Fairy tern construct their nests on exposed, low-lying areas of shell-covered sand and these delicate sea birds are very vulnerable. With a population of around 45 individuals that includes approximately 7 breeding pairs, the New Zealand fairy tern is probably our most endangered indigenous breeding bird.
