Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre

Wildlife Parks / North

Featuring threatened New Zealand falcons, hawks and owls - the Wingspan Bird of Prey Centre is a unique conservation programme of national significance.

Registered as a charitable trust in 1992, Wingspan was set up to fund the rehabilitation of a small number of injured harriers. Today it continues its rehabilitation work, alongside education, advocacy and breeding for release programmes.

The new Wingspan site remains under development, however we are thrilled to offer hosted one hour ‘Progress Visits’ on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays by appointment. Bookings are strictly limited, so contact us early to check availability and avoid disappointment.

The free flying falcons are passionately described as little 'spitfires'. Visitors will be impressed by their fast flight, steep climbs and stoops.

A high impact encounter that simply should not be missed!
