Keystone Ecology offer specialist ornithological knowledge of the Canterbury region, as well ecological knowledge of the wider South Island. We are happy to visit schools to give talks at any level on the importance of kaitiakitanga (taking care of our environment) and the biodiversity that can be found in and around Christchurch.

We also offer day tours for bird enthusiasts. Here you will get to experience first-hand the sights and sounds of bird life around Canterbury, while being informed and entertained by Niall Mugan’s lifetime of birding experience. For more information on birds in the Christchurch area visit
