These sweet little sea birds have been struggling lately and desperately need our help.
Cook's Petrels are at home when they are either on the sea or in the air and only go on land to nest and breed. Their nesting places are Great Barrier and Little Barrier and their flight path to get to these places takes them directly over Auckland City.
Unfortunately for these birds they become confused by some of the city lights and land on the ground. Once on the ground they are unable to take flight and are at risk of predator attack, being hit by cars or starvation as they cannot feed themselves on land.
BirdCare Aotearoa have been helping to rescue and rehabilitate the Cook's Petrels which have become stranded on land in their droves over the past few summers and these numbers are on the increase.
The aim of this limited edition necklace is to help raise awareness about their plight, how you can help if you happen to come across an injured or stranded bird and to raise some much needed funds to help these beautiful birds.
