CTA recently donated $200 to Forest & Bird and received a thank you email which is summarised as follows:
Thank you so much for taking action to protect the wildlife and wild places that you love here in Aotearoa.
Over 2500 people like you, who care about our natural environment, stepped up, dug deep and gave a gift to nature.
During lockdown, the Forest & Bird team were busy demanding an economic recovery for New Zealand that cares for people and planet. Thanks to your support, the Government allocated $1.1 billion dollars in their Covid response budget to help protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you love, creating 11,000 new conservation jobs in the process. A clear win for nature and the economy! If you would like to read more about Forest & Bird’s campaign for a Recovery for People and Planet you can do that here.
And that’s not all. Thanks to you, progress has been made on nearly every campaign front over the past few months. You can read more about the incredible campaigns you are funding here.
