Conservation & Education

Inspiring and enabling New Zealanders to care for their habitats and species as part of a healthier society and economy. 

Earth Hour 2023

Together, we created the #BiggestHourforEarth, with over 410,000 people from more than 190 countries and territories across the world giving an hour for our planet.

We are the first generation with the solutions and the last that can take action and reverse nature loss, limit climate change, before it's too late. And through Earth Hour, you've inspired your community to act, one hour at a time, and shown that the sum of our actions is greater than its parts.

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.
