PSNZ Annual Bird Sale 2021
Our first bird sale for 2 years was a great success. We teamed up with the Northland Branch and the venue was well supported. A big thank you to all who attended, with or without birds. All of the generous donations and profit will go towards the legal costs of fighting the bird ban. Thank you to all our attendees who also offered their moral support for our endeavours, it was much appreciated. Photos courtesy of Hayden Van Hooff.
