Forest & Bird campaigns for better protection of a range of habitats, native species and natural resources on land and in our lakes, rivers and oceans.
Forest & Bird’s story: New Zealand’s story
New Zealanders have a proud history of environmental protection and we're looking forward to a bright future.
Save our Seabirds
We're working to protect our title of 'seabird capital of the world' through nesting projects and a series of research and mapping programmes.
Save the Denniston : Ours Not Mine
Past and present mining operations have had a disastrous impact of natural places. New mining proposals threaten to make the situation worse
Save our Mackenzie Country
Our Mackenzie country will turn from russet brown to bright green if over a hundred irrigation proposals before Environment Canterbury go ahead.
Sea Lions: Our Southern Pride
New Zealand is home to a large population of nursing mothers & their pups, who often fall prey to trawling operations.
Restore our Dawn Chorus
Our forests are quieter than they used to be - this campaign aims to bring back a full choir of songbirds to our forests.
Save the Mokihinui: Keep it in a Park
Forest & Bird successfully saved the Mokihinui river from a dam, now we want to give it greater protection by placing it in Kahurangi National Park
We love marine reserves
A third of NZ's land mass is now protected in national parks, yet only a tiny fraction of our marine environment has similar protection.
