We save the planet

But the planet is a pretty big place

Which is why our network of over 100 local offices around the world, including our team here in Aotearoa New Zealand, means we can work locally on conservation challenges that need global cooperation and local expertise. 

  • We use the best science and partner with government, businesses and people to encourage everyone to be environmentally responsible.

  •  We inspire people to live within their fair share of the world's natural resources, and protect the animals and plants that we share the planet with. 

All our work involves people 


Whether it's protecting New Zealand’s Māui dolphins, inspiring people to show they support action for climate change with Earth Hour, or working with schools and communities on grassroots conservation projects that work everyday to protect our native habitats and species.
