Conservation Week 2022 focuses on how we can take action for nature.

Taking action not only benefits nature, but also our personal wellbeing. Ka ora te whenua, ka ora te tangata – when the land is well, the people are well. When Papatūānuku thrives, we thrive.

There are many events you can attend, locally and New Zealand wide and activities you can do at home and in your local community to support this week. Take a look at the DOC website to get some ideas.

Local ideas:

Count some tracks on the beach for our West Coast Annual Blue Penguin Count

Attend the Carters Beach market and planting day on Saturday 10th September
