Work for us

WWF-New Zealand staff work on programmes across New Zealand and the Pacific, acting locally and working globally as part of the WWF International network.

As a leading independent conservation organisation, we have an important job to do to reverse the loss of biodiversity and restore nature. Working together with our colleagues, partners, and incredible supporters to secure a future where both people and nature thrive.

Our staff are passionate and committed to protecting our precious species and places. Everyone plays their part in helping us fight for our world – whether they lead scientific research and conservation initiatives, campaign and influence policy or secure funding and engage supporters. 

We celebrate and respect diversity in nature and among our people. 

Our values

  • Courage: We demonstrate courage through our actions, we work for change where it’s needed, and we inspire people and institutions to tackle the greatest threats to nature and the future of the planet, which is our home.
  • Integrity: We live the principles we call on others to meet. We act with integrity, accountability, and transparency, and we rely on facts and science to guide us and to ensure we learn and evolve.
  • Respect: We honour the voices and knowledge of the people and communities that we serve, and we work to secure their rights to a sustainable future. 
  • Collaboration: We deliver impact at the scale of the challenges we face through the power of collective action and innovation
