 Farewell Spit HealthPost Nature Trust

Farewell Spit HealthPost Nature Trust Logo
HealthPost has founded the Farewell Spit HealthPost Nature Trust to create a wondrous, accessible eco-sanctuary at Farewell Spit, in partnership with the Department of Conservation.
The Trust's vision is to greatly enhance biodiversity in the Farewell Spit area, allowing threatened species already there such as katipo spiders to flourish and creating a safe breeding habitat for bird species including fairy prions, shearwaters, godwits, petrels, bitterns and penguins.  The ultimate goal is to build a rich and protected ecosystem that will allow for the reintroduction of rare and endangered species, such as the pāteke (brown teal), the Little Spotted Kiwi and the Nelson Green Gecko. 
It will be a place for people to experience this unique landform at the tip of the South Island as a thriving and diverse ecosystem.  And for those who cannot visit Farewell Spit in person HealthPost and the Trust will frequently the update the progress being made, including one day the sight and sound of rare chicks being raised.
“This very generous offer from Healthpost will allow one of New Zealand’s most significant places, the iconic Farewell Spit and surrounds, to receive pest and weed control on a scale it deserves .Higher protection will be afforded to the iconic  flocks of Godwits and Knots and wonderful flora and fauna of international significance . A brilliant project.”  Craig Potton, Conservationist and Trustee.
The Farewell Spit HeathPost Nature Trust is lodged with the Charities Commission and registration is pending.
HealthPost donates a dollar every time you select the Farewell Spit HealthPost Nature Trust after placing an online order. One click helps make this vision a reality!

Charity of the Month - December: The Rock Vets

The Rock Vets Logo
Known as “the Rock of Polynesia”, Niue is one of the smallest Islands in the South Pacific with an estimated population of 1,450 humans and many more cats and dogs. Unfortunately, Niue does not have a Veterinary Clinic to care for the increasing population of animals on the island.
The Rock Vets mission is therefore to provide the much needed veterinary care to improve the lives of the animals, to aid population control and to improve the ecology of the island.
Each year, The Rock Vets in conjunction with Pakuranga & Whitford Vets send a team of Vets and Nurses to Niue to run a charity vet clinic. All funds go directly towards purchasing drugs and supplies for the clinic and towards flights and accommodation for the volunteers who use their own annual leave to go along to help.
Please join us today in supporting The Rock Vets, so they can continue to provide support and care to the animals of Niue.
You can read more about The Rock Vets and follow their journey on their Facebook page.

Red Cross work in Vanuatu

With Cyclone Pam causing catastrophic devastation in Vanuatu, we've asked that our latest donation to Red Cross NZ be used exclusively to help provide relief for the people of this island nation. The type of work Red Cross is doing in Vanuatu includes the distribution of essential household items, tarpaulins, shelter toolkits, safe drinking water and health and first aid programs. They will also be rolling out longer term recovery projects to support the stronger and safer rebuilding of damaged homes and of course the restoration and strengthening of livelihoods will also be crucial due to the significant damage to crops, livestock and fisheries.
