You can donate towards the research and conservation work of the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust.

Right now, we are fundraising for a new outboard motor for one of our three small boats. We need about $15,000. If you are able to fund the full amount, we’ll be happy to put your company logo on this website or to mention you by name if you are a private individual rather than a company. But any amount, no matter how small will be hugely helpful to our work. Some of our supporters make a regular, monthly payment and small amounts really add up over time.

All donations great and small count! We can guarantee that 100% of your donation will go to research and conservation.

We are a registered charitable Trust, and donations of more than NZ$ 5 are tax deductible (IRD no. 61286969).
