Tamatea – Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound

DOC has a 30-year restoration project under way in Tamatea/Dusky Sound on the southeast coast of Fiordland National Park. Its ambition is for the fiord to be one of Earth’s most intact ecosystems, a source of endangered native species with which to repopulate conservation sites elsewhere.

To help tell Tamatea’s story, 26 artists have produced more than 50 original works of art inspired by the area. Each artist has donated some or all of their work to support DOC’s conservation and restoration projects in Dusky Sound.

Tamatea – Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound is on national tour until November 2018.

The Foundation is supporting this creative project, providing expertise in funds management.
