Ranger for the Day Experience

Experience a remarkable behind-the-scenes day at Ngā Manu Nature Reserve!

Ranger for the day 1

This is the ultimate way to spend a day for someone who loves nature! Staff at Ngā Manu will take you under their wing and involve you in the day-to-day activities of their job. You will get to help prepare the food, feed and meet our native birds including the kea, kākā, kererū, and kiwi and get up close to our tuatara. Learn about our native species and discover what it is really like to be a wildlife ranger. You shall receive a certificate in the mail after your visit, with photographs taken during your Ranger for the Day Experience.
