Conservation Week 2018 is here!


Conservation Week is a New Zealand, Department of Conservation run initiative that takes place each year to encourage people to get involved in nature and help to take care of it.

Each year DOC works with community groups across Aotearoa to spread the conservation message. It’s a nationwide celebration of kiwis pitching in to help our native plants and animals. All over the country "kiwi" are encouraged to get involved by, going to a local Conservation Week event, doing an activity off your own back or donating to existing conservation programmes.
