When we founded our EcoTours in 2013, the Birdsong Trust was our first avenue to donate to conservation. The Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust is a partnership between commercial operators, the community and the Department of Conservation The vision is 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 works closely with them and the local community, on local projects for local benefits.
EcoTours represents the tourism operators on the board of Trustees and we are also a platinum donor.
$1 per person per tour goes directly to Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust. Your contribution is much appreciated!
