Help us to help the Tuna / Longfin eel

One of New Zealand's top predators, the longfin eel is endemic to New Zealand, likely the biggest eel in the world reaching up to 2 metres in length, and can live for as long as 80 years.

With over 75% of our indigenous species at risk of extinction*, the Pest Free Waitākere Ranges Alliance is raising funds to help defend the many special species of the Waitākere Ranges.

Thank you for your support of the longfin eel!
