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.

Defend Nature

Many of our greatest battles aren’t fought in the oceans, in the forests, by the rivers, or on the beaches but on the benches – in tribunals and courtrooms. This is where we take on different giants, often faceless ones, seeking to exploit habitats and jeopardise nature’s way of life, our way of life. Defending nature shouldn’t come at a cost. But sadly, when you are up against giants, it often does.

Fight for Freshwater

Our fresh water ki uta ki wai (from mountains to sea) has been mismanaged to the point of crisis. Our wetlands are being drained and our native freshwater species are in big trouble.
