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!

Nature-Positive New Zealand

Across the world, there has been a 69% drop in monitored wildlife populations since 1970.  

In one lifetime, we have lost nature at an alarming rate. And we continue to do so. The situation is grave. But if we act now. If we act together. We can turn it around.

Together we can keep our most severely threatened species, like the Māui dolphin and the Antipodean albatross, from disappearing. We can stop the decline of our endangered and vulnerable penguins, mollymawks, and dolphins. We can reverse the damage to the oceans. 


You can help build a nature-positive future.
