Vote for Nature

Conservation area:

This election year Forest & Bird is asking New Zealanders to show politicians how much they love and care about nature. Please help us be the voice of nature during 2020.

Why it matters

Nature is part of our identity, underpins our economy, and makes this country special. We need the next government to take bold and urgent action to protect and restore the environment that we all depend on for life.

Forest & Bird has an ambitious three-year plan to restore vanishing species, mitigate the climate crisis, improve the health of our rivers, and properly protect our oceans. Download Policies for the Planet here and share it widely.

Policies for the Planet cover page

Our environment is in big trouble but we know investing in conservation works and with your help declines can be reversed.

Forest & Bird is New Zealand’s largest and oldest conservation organisation and we are proudly politically independent. We want all political parties to adopt our Policies for the Planet and we are asking you to help make this happen.
