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.

Forest & Bird is Aotearoa/New Zealand's leading independent conservation organisation.

We are nature's voice and work to defend nature – across our Land, Fresh water, Oceans and Climate. But we can't do it without your support.

Forest & Bird is defending nature across Aotearoa/New Zealand...

Nature needs your support

Supporting Forest & Bird is one of the best things you can do for New Zealand's environment. We need people like you to support us, so that nature will always have a voice.
