Tiritiri Matangi Island only allows 150 visitors a day to come to the open sanctuary. The ferry takes you there from Auckland and Gulf Harbor. The island and its tours are so amazing that we decided to become supporters. Additionally, every sale of “Polly Penguin Wants to Fly,” on this website or at Amazon, will generate a $1 donation for the work that Tiritiri Matangi is doing to protect native New Zealand species. To learn more about Tiritiri Matangi, check out our photos from the island and our tour review page.
