We invite you to a decadent evening of conservation and art.

To further support the ongoing work Sanctuary Mountain® Maungatautari is doing to carry out a habitat trial for kākāpō in the protected forest on Maungatautari.

We have come a long way, but there is still work to be done!

Set at a stunning location, by the edge of lake Karāpiro, with beautiful Maungatautari as our backdrop, we invite you to join us for an evening of exquisite cuisine, stimulating entertainment and stories told first about trailblazing kākāpō and the many other unique species that live in the protected forest and wetland habitats of Maungatautari, told firsthand by our guest speakers. Not only will your senses be awakened by our carefully crafted three-course meal, but your eyes will feast on the incredible pieces of art that will be available for purchase during our exclusive live auction.

Join us on this conservation journey to keep Maungatautari a safe, pest-free environment where endangered species, including kiwi and kākāpō can thrive on the mainland!
