The winning bidder will meet the amazing Rua and his handler Jo. They come every year to help The Karioi Project in Raglan locate, protect and monitor seabird burrows. You’ll learn what it takes to train a dog for specialist seabird work and see Rua in action - discovering new burrows and chicks!

The Karioi Project is a community conservation project working hard to ensure we don't lose our last remaining seabird species breeding on Karioi, the Oi (Grey-Faced Petrel). It's rare to find seabirds breeding on the mainland and only 40 breeding pairs of Oi remain on Karioi. We’re doing everything we can to protect this taonga seabird. To help us, Rua, a specially trained seabird dog sniffs out and locates seabird burrows along our coastline.

Please help us fund the 2019 seabird dog visit and join us on this unique adventure! Rua only visits once a year, so it's an opportunity to meet a special dog and his trainer.

As a charity auction, 100% of proceeds will go to The Karioi Project, specifically to fund the seabird dog visit and other activities to protect the Oi.

More about the winning bidder’s experience:

  • max of 2 people
  • experience a day in the life of a seabird dog and his handler
  • meet and greet with Rua and Jo - find out what it takes to train a dog to become a seabird dog
  • morning tea, a picnic lunch and afternoon snack will be provided.

Date: One day midweek between 13-16 August Time: 10am to 2pm Location: Raglan
