Adopt an animal

You'll be protecting precious habitats in New Zealand and around the world, and all the species that rely on them.

You can adopt a penguin, dolphin, albatross or tiger.  

Whether your symbolic adoption is for yourself, a gift, or to educate younger generations about conservation, you'll be helping build a better future.

Protect the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park

Bottom trawling, scallop dredging and Danish seining are destructive fishing methods that have been taking place in the Haruaki Gulf for decades.

Help us put pressure on the Government to remove these harmful fishing practices from the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. Help protect the Gulf and its precious seafloor species and habitats.
