Save our sealife

Our ocean animals don't deserve to drown in their thousands - frightened and in pain - on commercial lines, hooks and in nets every year. If you're sick of the excuses and lies from New Zealand's fishing industry while they continue to trash our ocean, join us and sign the Zero Bycatch Pledge.

Clean up our freshwater

Let's create a future where local streams and rivers are safe for kids to swim, eels can migrate to their ancestral waters, and our amazing freshwater fish and river birds can return to abundance. Show your support for strong action to clean up our fresh water.
