This March we're celebrating the whio – New Zealand's iconic blue duck.

These unique birds are some of the only ducks in the world to live in fast flowing streams. Their presence is a great indicator of healthy river eco-systems.

But, with less than 3000 left in New Zealand, we've got to do our best to keep them around!

Get involved

There are some great events and competitions running during March to celebrate Whio Awareness Month.
