What's a better mix than dogs, birds and beaches?
The Karioi Project has a charity auction featuring all three. They're trying to raise fund for a specialist seabird dog to visit Raglan in search of burrows and chicks.
The winner of this auction will meet Rua and the dog and his handler Jo in the coastal town, and see their work protecting and monitoring the seabirds there. Project manager Kristel van Houte tells us more.
