About Bush Haven

Bush Haven Native Bird Rehabilitation Trust is a community organisation based in Otatara, a semi-rural suburb of Invercargill on the southern coast of the New Zealand mainland. It was founded in 2008 by Russell and May Evans, who had been looking after injured native birds at their home in Otatara for some years and wished to set up a charitable organisation to continue and expand their work.

The Trust has Department of Conservation permits to hold and rehabilitate native birds and is a member of the Wildlife Rehabilitators Network of New Zealand (WReNNZ). It is run by volunteers, and now operates three sites: a reception/rehabilitation aviary and a release aviary in Otatara, and an aviary for injured moreporks and owls on the other side of Invercargill. It is a registered charity (registration number CC38814).
