The New Zealand Tahr Foundation, incorporated in 2016, representing all organisations with an interest in managing the tahr herds of New Zealand is operated by volunteers.

Your support helps us fulfill our purposes:

  • To actively manage Tahr as a "Herd of Special Interest" under the Game Animal Council Act (2013), in order to provide enhanced benefits to hunters and a higher level of protection for the forests and grasslands in which they live.
  • To advance a management regime that involves a collaborative partnership between Recreational and Commercial Tahr Hunters, the Game Animal Council, the Department of Conservation, the local Iwi, interested landowners and businesses with an interest in Tahr.
  • To achieve and maintain consistent, appropriate harvest levels of healthy Tahr by better coordination of recreational and commercial Tahr hunting.
  • To increase the understanding of the Tahr herd through better information and education.
