Te reo o te taiao - Voice for Nature
It’s with a sense of pride that we present our 2017/18 Annual Report. When we use the word “our”, we really do mean everyone who contributes to the work of Forest & Bird.
With your support, Forest & Bird works on behalf of New Zealanders who believe economic development must be sustainable and that we must act now to limit human-induced climate change.
Nature is our greatest treasure. Every day New Zealanders are physically, emotionally and economically enriched by the natural environment in which we live.
Five years ago the Board developed the first strategic plan for Forest & Bird. Last year the Board updated the strategic plan. In both plans we have had the goal of growing and strengthening our finances, membership and organisation.
In 2014/15 Forest & Bird achieved some notable success advocating for and protecting our natural environment and also took important steps to strengthen and focus the organisation to address the conservation priorities of the 21st century.
2013 was a landmark year as Forest & Bird members celebrated the 90th birthday with events around the country, focusing on local milestones and the work done by long-standing volunteers.
New Zealand’s reputation as 100% Pure has long been the cornerstone of our national identity and international selling point.
Fighting for nature can be an uphill battle during an economic recession. The government’s purse strings draw tighter and investment in our natural resources is too often seen as an unaffordable luxury.
In a year that New Zealanders coped with natural disasters and economic downturn, Forest & Bird maintained the momentum for protecting nature.
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.
