You will be able to visit our Shorebird Centre knowing it is a safe space for you and your whānau to experience and enjoy.


Will you still run Events and Courses?

Courses and events are a highlight of our calendar and we would be disappointed to cancel any, but they will need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Many of our courses and events involve large numbers of participants or close settings that could pose risks. We will keep participants and our calendar updated with any changes or requirements.

You can find out more about the Covid-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light System) here https://www.business.govt.nz/covid-19/covid-19-protection-framework/

As Government advice changes we expect that these guidelines will also change so please check back.

Kia kaha everyone. These are unprecedented times so please keep yourselves, whānau and friends safe and be kind to everyone in our communities facing it with us.

Nga mihi nui,

– The Pūkorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre Team
