Wingspan – New Zealand Falcon – Rotorua NZ

A couple of years back we went to New Zealand to visit my son who was studying over there. It was rather a flying a visit but we managed to call at Rotorua and spent an afternoon at Wingspan – it was one of the highlights of the trip. You can tell this by the smiles on the faces of my youngest son and husband!!

Wingspan is a Trust set up to care for sick, injured and orphaned raptors. Their main aim is to return these raptors back to the wild. However some of the birds for various reasons cannot be returned and they form part of their education program.

Watching these magnificent birds up close was amazing and the staff were so generous with their time and giving the opportunity to interact and insight into these birds. If you ever get the opportunity please visit them they are doing wonderful work both in education as well as rehabilitation.

  1. Hello,
    I am a watercolour artist from Palmerston North. I have recently painted a Falcon which I have produced into greeting cards and I am wondering if you would be interested in seeing them with a view to selling the cards in your gift store.
    I would be grateful if you could reply and let me know.
