Nature is our greatest treasure. Every day New Zealanders are physically, emotionally and economically enriched by the natural environment in which we live.

Our vision

Aotearoa/New Zealand – where ecological resilience is at the heart of everything we do.

Our mission

To protect and restore nature in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Protecting and restoring this taonga is a profoundly important responsibility for us all. We love our natural environment for its intrinsic value. We believe we must leave a healthier more resilient natural world as the foundation for our society, our children and future generations.

Since 1923 Forest & Bird has been New Zealand’s independent voice for nature. Over generations we’ve helped make New Zealand a better place to live by standing with communities to protect forests, lakes and rivers from destruction, campaigning to create marine reserves and eco-sanctuaries and working to save threatened species.

Developed with input from members, supporters and experts, this Strategic Plan looks ahead five, ten and twenty-five years and identifies conservation goals that will protect and restore nature in New Zealand.

Working with individuals and communities we will achieve our vision of a future where ecological resilience is at the heart of everything we do.

We are over 70,000 New Zealand members and supporters. We stand up for nature and we are honoured to hold and nurture this legacy now and for the future.

Thank you for helping us to achieve our goals and deliver this Strategic Plan for nature.
