As we celebrate 50 years of Conservation Week, we are reflecting on 50 years of amazing people who have saved species, created marine reserves, restored habitats and inspired the next 50 years of people protecting our native taonga.
Although lots of critical work has been done in the past, New Zealand's wildlife is in crisis with more than 4,000 of our native animals and plants threatened or at risk. This Conservation Week we want you to do something, big or small to create change.
Thousands of New Zealanders will be getting involved in local, family friendly and fun conservation events hosted across the country. Creating change can be big or small – when we pull together, we can make a big difference.
Nature Needs Us!
