Living Planet Report 2022

There has been a devastating 69% drop on average of monitored wildlife populations* - mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish - since 1970, according to WWF’s Living Planet Report (LPR) 2022. The report highlights the stark outlook of the state of nature and urgently warns governments, businesses, and the public to take transformative action to reverse the destruction of biodiversity.

Protect the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park

Bottom trawling, scallop dredging and Danish seining are destructive fishing methods that have been taking place in the Haruaki Gulf for decades.

Help us put pressure on the Government to remove these harmful fishing practices from the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. Help protect the Gulf and its precious seafloor species and habitats.
