The primary purpose of the Game Bird Habitat Trust Board is to distribute funding for the development and enhancement of habitat for the benefit of game birds and other wetland inhabitants.

The Game Bird Habitat Trust is the sole body dedicated to providing financial backing for hunting and conservation in New Zealand.

It has been influential in supporting many projects by recognising that often all that is needed to enable a project to go ahead is a modest grant.

If you have a commitment to conserve and own or help manage land that is capable of supporting game birds, the Trust Board would like to help you create or restore suitable habitat.

Apply for a New Zealand Game Bird Habitat Trust Board grant using the application form below. Applications close on 30 June each year.
