Introducing the Foundation

OUR FOUNDATION WILL HELP YOU CREATE A LIVING LEGACY

We do this by investing in future-focused conservation projects that make our world a better place. New Zealand is a world leader in conservation and species management, renowned for its innovations, operations and techniques.

We are good at saving species — the Chathams Island robin, takahe- , ka - kapo, ko-kako, kiwi — and we are good at preserving and restoring habitats. One of the biggest challenges New Zealand faces is funding.

INVESTING IN CONSERVATION FOR THE FUTURE

The New Zealand National Parks and Conservation Foundation's primary role is to facilitate opportunities for individuals and businesses to contribute towards conserving New Zealand’s natural heritage — its landscapes and the native plants and animals that live among them.

We call it conservation philanthropy. We invite you to join us.
