Fairy Tern | Tara-Iti | Card

Regular 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.

Please note that on occasion Aramex may deem an area to be rural where other companies may not, this unfortunately is outside of our control as Aramex are the preferred courier for live plants, as other couriers will not transport them.
