The Furry Community initially grew out of the Science Fiction and Fantasy fandoms.
In very broad terms, Furries are fans of anthropomorphism and things having to do with creatures and animals.
There are a vast array of subject areas that Furries are interested in: Mythology (eg. totem spirits and animism), Science (eg. bioengineering and veterinary sciences), Literature (eg. Poetry and storytelling), Mass Media (eg. Films, cartoons and televison shows) and the list goes on…
FurCoNZ is the annual gathering for the New Zealand Furry community, typically held in summer every year. Unlike most foreign Furry Conventions, FurCoNZ is not hosted in a hotel. Instead it is run as a camp, much like Camp Feral! or Oklacon. This keeps FurCoNZ simple and more informal, while retaining the link to the New Zealand outdoors.
While FurCoNZ is for the Furry community, we are most welcoming of members from other communities, such as Bronies/Pegasisters, Otherkin, or any one else who may just be curious.
