Get Involved

If you are keen to get involved and help us achieve our goal, send us an email or give us a call.  If you have skills that you think could help us get in touch!

A donation, however small, will help us as we work to achieve Dark Sky Sanctuary Status for Kaikōura. Thank you.

Our costs are many! Equipment, collecting & collating data, private plan change, working with stakeholders who invest in our lighting infrastructure, communicating & engaging with our community and ultimately preparing our application for the International Dark Sky Association.

We cannot achieve our goals without the generosity of businesses, individual donors and grant funding. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far.

Our Supporters

Thank you to all our supporters who have kindly provided free ongoing services & advice or have generously donated funds. You are amazing and the stars will shine a little brighter because of you.
