People, Nature, Climate

You can help nature by giving it more protected places.

Where plants and animals don’t have to compete with humans for food, for space. Where ecosystems can recover and absorb more carbon. Your donation now will help us advocate strongly for protection of 30% of our ocean and all the species that call it home.

You can help nature by restoring species' habitats.

With your donation today, you can help New Zealand adopt nature-based solutions like coastal and wetland restoration and riparian plantings that improve climate resilience for tangata and taonga, people and precious native species.

Stop Plastic Pollution

More than 11 million metric tons of plastic are flowing into the ocean each year. Once it is there, it’s almost impossible to remove. 

It’s not good for people, or the planet. For marine life, it is catastrophic. 

Ingestion, entanglement, smothering and slow poisoning from leached chemicals, all cause sickness, weakness, injury, and death. Chicks, pups and calves are particularly vulnerable.  

Plastic in the ocean is pervasive and increasing.


The time has come to end it!

Adopt an animal

By adopting an animal through a monthly donation to WWF, you will be safeguarding the home, food, and safety of threatened and endangered species locally and globally. Your adoption is a symbol of your compassion for all species on our planet.

A WWF animal adoption also makes the perfect gift for any animal lover, and is a great way to inspire friends, family and loved ones to care for nature as much as you do!
