Who we are

WWF-New Zealand is part of the world’s largest organisation dedicated to protecting nature and looking after the planet.

Looking after the oceans and the animals that live there is one of WWF’s top global priorities, and because New Zealand has stunning and unique sea life, our focus here is on looking after our marine animals especially those on the brink of extinction like the Māui dolphins.

We also work with local communities to protect our endangered species, and look after the beautiful native bush and amazing landscapes of New Zealand.

Our mission is broader than protecting animals; we are here to help look after the planet as a whole and are committed to inspiring people to take action on climate change to help move New Zealand and the world to a clean, green energy future.

All of our work is made possible by the support of our brilliant and dedicated supporters.
