Introduction

You can meet a takahē at several sites around the country. In the wild, takahē only exist in the Murchison Mountains.

Outside of the Murchison Mountains, takahē live at sanctuary sites. With the exception of the Burwood Takahē Centre, Cape Sanctuary, and two privately owned islands, these are all open to the public.

Takahē at public sites are our ambassadors, providing opportunities for you to admire and learn more about these amazing 'pre-historic' looking birds.
