Are there any restrictions forbidding the shipment of gliders to New Zealand? A man contacted me saying that he was not be able to find joeys anywhere and he wanted to get them for his daughter. I don't ship; but I have been contemplating shipping this one time because I would like to help him out. I need information because I know next to nothing about shipping gliders or the laws and regulations governing their shipment. Any help would be much appreciated.

Wow, I don't know... I would think that I trip to New Zealand would be rather stressful though. Do you have any idea how long the flight would be? Also, how far are you from the nearest air-port that ships? How far is the guy in New Zealand away from the air port that would be receiving the glider?

I posted an answer to this yesterday; but must have pushed the wrong button cause it didn't make it into the thread. I've been to NZ a couple of times and have done some recent study on the question of gliders in NZ.....there are none........and can say with certainty, from chatting with Kiwis at zoos and sanctuaries, that gliders would not be permitted in NZ!!!

I definately agree with Randy & he is correct there are no <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" />'s in New Zealand - although many people seem to think so! LOL
They have a massive problem with brushtail possums though & destroy them by poisoning every chance they get.
They also have a few wallaby species that were brought in many years ago - Parma's & Bennets

It is a 12 hour flight from the USA west coast & that would be with a direct flight (have family who live in NZ)

its a bad idea the joeys would probably arrive dead besides from stress. also this man might be a con man like a few out of the country in the past. dont do it if u care for gliders at all.
