Birdman Wellington 2013 results

24 Jan 2013


Forest & Bird would like to express a huge thank you to all our Birdman Wellington entrants. What a wild, wacky, creative bunch of costumes and flying contraptions.

It was fantastic to see so many people fundraise so Forest & Bird can continue to help protect our unique landscapes, marine treasures and our beautiful native creatures.
