We don’t want to be the last generation to look up at a Rātā or spot Maui Dolphins in our seas.

What’s going on?

  • New Zealand’s biodiversity needs protecting, and your voice can help make sure that happens.

  • Our indigenous plants, animals and ecosystems are under threat.

  • We have 4,000 species at risk of extinction and natural ecosystems in decline.

Things aren’t looking good, but by having your say, you can help turn things around.


The problem:

Our birds and plant life are endangered.

  • Our indigenous biodiversity is in serious trouble. We have 4,000 species at risk of extinction

  • Even though we’ve been making progress, our natural ecosystems are in decline.

  • Our current New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy is nearly 20 years old and expires next year. It’s time for a new one!

  • Now, we need your help to create a strategy that addresses current issues, like climate change.


Have your say from now til 22 September on the new Biodiversity Strategy.

Learn more about the Biodiversity Strategy, and then head on over to the submissions page to tell the Department of Conservation what matters to you!


NZ’s biodiversity vision:

Nature in Aotearoa is healthy, abundant, and thriving. Current and future generations connect with nature, restore it and are restored by it.
