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 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.
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.
