Forest and Bird's Bird of the Century campaign has announced the champion: The Pūteketeke!!!
After an "alarmingly aggressive" campaign by Last Week Tonight's host, John Oliver, the Pūteketeke has come out on top and taken the title of Bird of the Century. We absolutely love this global news coverage as it not only garners a lot of attention for our vulnerable native species, but also raised money to support the amazing mahi of Forest and Bird. Now you can also support our lovely birds by purchasing and wearing this sustainable design - $2 from each pair sold will go to Forest and Bird.
These triple layer design is laser cut from white, gold and black ice cream container lids and drape over one another like the 'crest' on the Pūteketeke/ Australasian Crested Grebe.
Dimensions: large feather 3.7cm x 3cm at widest point.
Made in Christchurch, NZ by Remix Plastic. Find out more about how and why they are made here. We always ship plastic free.
NOTE: Each feather is unique with its own colours (and blemishes) - they are fully functioning and we celebrate their uniqueness, as we hope you do! Please get in touch if you are not satisfied with your purchase and we will do what we can to resolve any issues in a timely manner.
