Welcome to Fauna Recovery New Zealand, the conservation arm of The Sue Freitag and Barry Dent Charitable Trust, New Zealand Registered Charity Number CC46108.


The Charitable Trust is the philanthropic vehicle for Sue Freitag and Barry Dent, their Family Trust, and their various businesses. It gives to projects in the social development and nature conservation areas.  In the social development area, we have been supporting the Books in Homes program since 1999. On the conservation side, we are focussed on recovery of New Zealand’s land-breeding animals and their ecosystems and have worked in this area since 2002.   The purpose of this site is to allow other like-minded people to read about the various conservation projects and to get the latest news by subscribing to updates from the site.
