Bird of The Year, Forest & Bird Collaboration
Honeywrap is on a mission to help protect nature and preserve our planet for future generations. Our focus is to raise awareness and inspire our community to take simple actions that make a combined difference.
We love partnering with charities and supporting the awesome work that they do.


Honeywrap is excited to support Forest and Bird, again for the Bird of the Century 2023 campaign. $1.00 from each limited edition Bird of the Year/Century wrap supports Forest and Bird and the work they do protecting, restoring and defending New Zealand’s precious wildlife and wild places. 
Forest and Bird is the voice for Nature. Bird of the Year is an annual election-based competition run by Forest & Bird to elect a "Bird of the Year" in New Zealand.


Why does Forest & Bird run Bird of the Year?
Raising Awareness
New Zealand’s birds are amazing! Tragically, many species are in danger of becoming extinct, so they need all the recognition they can get. 
Bird of the Year helps to raise awareness for New Zealand’s birds, in the hope of inspiring people to take action to protect our incredible native birds and the places they live. We can work together to protect our birds by taking care of our environment, forests and oceans, and controlling pest species.
When we care for our birds, we care for our communities. When our rivers, forests, and oceans are healthy, both birds and people will thrive!  
Our amazing birds need your help.
Bird of the Year celebrates our unique birds and each vote you make, helps give our New Zealand birds a voice.
Show your love for birds by voting in Bird of the Year and supporting Forest & Bird. 


Bird of the Year is also a fundraiser for Forest & Bird. Forest & Bird is an independent conservation charity that relies on donations to protect and restore nature.
