The Marlborough Falcon Trust is a volunteer-run charitable trust dedicated to the conservation of the New Zealand falcon in Marlborough and nationwide. Our vision is of a thriving Karearea (NZ Falcon) population, restored throughout Marlborough’s various natural and man-managed habitats.


Our view is that heightened public awareness of the NZ Falcon is critical to not only ensure understanding of this over-looked native treasure but to stop persecution and ensure successful co-existence.

We see the story of the NZ Falcon’s recovery and our programme as providing a highly visible opportunity for promoting wider conservational advocacy.
