The second annual “Birds of a Feather” Charity Ball has raised over $65,000 for the Department of Conservation’s Tamatea/Dusky Sound Restoration Project and saw Real Journeys commit to making Cooper Island, (the third largest island in Dusky Sound, Fiordland) predator-free.
An exclusive preview of some of the art created for the Department of Conservation’s Tamatea/Dusky Sound art exhibition, including works by renowned Kiwi artists Simon Kaan, Gerda Leenards, Cilla McQueen and Marilynn Webb will be on display and for sale* during the “Birds of a Feather” Charity Ball on 13th August - Real Journeys and DOC have announced.
Real Journeys Cruise-for-a-Cause applications close at the end of the month. The project enables two community based not-for-profit/charitable organisations to raise funds for a good cause by selling tickets to an entire overnight cruise in the World Heritage Area of Fiordland.
The Department of Conservation’s (DOC) vision to make Dusky Sound, in Fiordland, one of the most intact ecosystems in the world will move a step closer with the announcement of three more Dusky Sound Conservation Discovery Expeditions this year, in conjunction with Real Journeys.
