Conservation Week


Sep 14 - Sep 20




Most activities are free

Aotearoa New Zealand's wildlife is still in crisis. More than 4000 of our native animals and plants are threatened or at risk. 

With more than 80 activities around the country, there really is something for everyone.

From guided night walks to dawn chorus hikoi. Art exhibitions, classes and storytelling sessions. Planting days and plant pest working bees. Rat trap giveaways and predator trapping workshops. Quiz nights and adventure races. Kiwi aversion training for dogs and boot cleaning demonstrations for best practice biosecurity.

Get amongst it and do your bit to help care for our native animals and plant taonga and incredible wilderness places.

Nature needs us.
